I teach mathematics in Sydney, Australia. Since November 2012, I have uploaded videos of my actual classroom lessons to Youtube to share learning resources with the world. You can view a brief introduction to my channel, watch a lengthier (7 minute) presentation that explains some of my motivation for doing this, or hear a detailed (16 minute) explanation about the flipped classroom concept.

2 thoughts on “About Eddie

  1. As an 80 year old retired GP and grandmother from the UK, who has always loved maths and who started Open University maths some years ago, I want to say a big Thank You Eddie, for the fun I have been having during the lockdown, and while I nebulise my drugs, watching your videos. You are, as you know, GREAT, and I send my best wishes for your little ones with their allergies.

  2. I’m a 73 year old retired engineer with a BS in engineering physics and a masters in Applied Math. I found you on youtube and your energy, enthusiasm and great explanations of math are wonderful! Thanks for teaching! The first one I saw was the 4 triangles creating a square that simply explained the pythagorean theorem. Fantastic! Your students don’t know how fortunate they are!! I can see I’m going to have fun watching many of your videos!
