About Jacob
I taught high school math for nine years at Ridgeview Classical Schools, a place where I was free to engage my students in the most thought-provoking and challenging math problems available. I always aimed to teach like Socrates - by questioning - and to give my students the chance to think things through for themselves. My classes were always evolving as my experience grew because I was always looking for better ways to captivate my students with the beauty and logic of mathematics. Students did a lot of the explaining in my classes, and I always looked for ways to reveal both the historical roots and the modern uses of the concepts.
