James Tanton, "Bicycle Math"

In this series of videos, James Tanton (Mathematical Association of America) leads a Math Teachers' Circle session titled "Bicycle Math." Teachers explore the delightful and mysterious mathematics of bicycle tracks, solve some quirky questions about them, and also look at some mysteries still unsolved today.

Math Teachers' Circles (http://www.mathteacherscircle.org) are professional communities of middle school math teachers and mathematicians who meet regularly to work on rich math problems. Our goal is to help middle school math teachers confidently incorporate open-ended, authentic mathematical problem solving in their teaching.

This video was filmed in April 2015, when 30 mathematicians and math teachers came to a Math Teachers' Circle session at the American Institute of Mathematics in San Jose, CA.
