Your Heart is your Identity | Sunil Singh | TEDxStMaryCSSchool


One of the greatest gifts we can give people is what is deep inside our hearts. The goodness inside comes in many forms–joy, sorrow, wonder, doubt, and even failure. The unearthing of the deepest sense of who we are is not just beneficial to charting a fearless life for ourselves, but to connect honestly, passionately, and indiscriminately with all those who will cross our paths. Using mathematics, music, and teaching, Sunil Singh shares his own heart–filled with loss and gratitude–to inspire a journey that can transform one’s identity into one’s destiny. Sunil Singh @Mathgarden Sunil Singh was a high school math and physics teacher for 19 years. He has taught every grade level, and in every situation imaginable–from the socio-economic challenges of tough,urban schools in Toronto, Ontario to an International Baccalaureate School in Switzerland. His views on the purpose and potential for learning mathematics have been strongly fostered in this wide domain of experiences–that all students are capable of loving mathematics. Sunil has viewed mathematics as an adventure his entire life, and now mathematics is providing adventures for him in writing and traveling. He has given over 50 presentations on creative mathematics all over North America, including The Royal Conservatory of Mathematics in Toronto and The Museum of Mathematics in New York. Not only is he the author of Pi of Life: The Hidden Happiness of Mathematics and Math Recess: Playful Learning in The Age of Disruption, but he was also a regular writer for The New York Times Numberplay section. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
