For four decades Edward Manfre has been creating digital and print materials that help students think quantitatively, creatively, critically, and independently. He was a senior author on several major textbook series and has served as the content lead on educational software projects dating back to the days of the Apple II.
His background in physics, math and journalism has led to diverse classroom resources including the problem solving series Adventures in Thinking, more than a hundred math videos, an ancillary program that targets and rectifies student misconceptions, and a standardized test that measures conceptual understanding and reasoning. He has taught mathematics in grades K-12 as well as developmental math and math education at the college level.
For the past few years his research has focused on using digital media to help students understand math concepts and using second-language learning methods to improve math fluency.
