To say that I’ve been blessed in my professional career would be like saying that Leonhard Euler was pretty good at math.

I was blessed again recently, when former NCTM President Johnny Lott asked if I would lead a topic study group at the 13th International Congress for Math Education (ICME-13), which will be held July 24‑31, 2016, at Universität Hamburg, Germany.


Christian Mercat of University Claude Bernard Lyon 1 is my co-chair for Topic Study Group 7: Popularization of Mathematics.

I would like to invite you to be my guest at ICME‑13 and to attend our topic study group.

We are seeking papers and presentations from a diverse, global panel, and any and all recommendations are greatly welcomed. Please post your suggestions in the comments, or email me at
