Jaime Escalante is joined by celebrity guests including Bill Cosby, the late jazz great Dizzy Gillespie, and Teri Garr to bring home the message that math isn’t something to be afraid of–it’s something to use.
Math…Who Needs It?! combines inspiring scenes from Escalante’s classroom and behind-the-scenes interviews with professionals in math-related fields. This one-hour special program is used by parents and in a wide array of educational and training groups to help students of all ages answer the question “Why do I need to learn all this stuff?”
