"Math is the new literacy for the 21st Century", says Nigel Nisbet.

Armed with a degree in mathematics, and early success as a rock musician, Nigel began his education career teaching at an idyllic private all-girls school in rural England.
After moving to theU.S., he taught Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science at Van Nuys Senior High, pioneering the use of technology in the classroom, and project-based learning. Leaving the classroom in 2006, he became a Mathematics Specialist for the Los Angeles Unified School District, the second largest school district in the United States.

A passionate believer in the power of all students to learn mathematics conceptually, Nigel joined the nonprofit MIND Research Institute team as Senior Mathematics Specialist in the spring of 2010, becoming the Director of Content Creation in early 2011. Here, Nigel devotes his time to reaching into the structure and beauty of mathematics, finding ways to build engaging, interactive visual games that teach all students how math really works.
