Margaret Dahlberg isn't the typical guest you'll find on a math podcast! She is a classically trained pianist, composer, and music educator... and Allison is talking with her today about music, emotions, and math anxiety. 

In this episode, Allison and Margaret discuss:

  • Margaret's story of picking herself up from a life-altering car accident
  • Parenting conversations to help kids overcome failure and anxiety
  • Allison's month-long experiment in her math class to help students overcome math anxiety
  • How different types of meditation and music can help students with math anxiety
  • How Margaret creates music to help express and relieve some tough emotions 

We also have our first mini-concert on the podcast!
