Abstract: In this interactive talk, I will start by facilitating a discussion around what mathematical creativity is and how we know when we (or others) are creative. Then, we will share instances in our education where we felt creative in math, and why we did. If time permits, I will share some research findings about what teaching actions undergraduate students in Calculus 1 thought fostered their own creativity, and how it made them feel.
