About the Author
Dan Radin taught mathematics for thirteen years at the middle school, high school, and college levels. He has a masters degree in Curriculum and Teaching from Michigan State University and a bachelors degree in Applied and Engineering Physics from Cornell University. He has always been particularly interested in presenting students with the more beautiful aspects of mathematics. In 2007, he created a computer-animated video about the Platonic solids entitled, "Platonic Solid Rock." In 1999, he created a college course entitled, "The Art of Mathematics." The development of this course was funded by The National Science Foundation. In 1984, he created a snap-together educational model construction kit based on Buckminster Fuller's concept of tensegrity. The kit was called, "FANTASTIX," and sold in over fifty different educational stores and catalogs. The kit was a required material for a Design Science course at Harvard University. Dan Radin currently works with various state departments of education helping them develop mathematics teacher certification programs.
