Tim&DianeBW

Classrooms will never be the same after the premiere episode of Scholastic’s Math@Work, hosted by Tim Gunn. Gunn and three students take a tour of CFDA President, Diane von Furstenberg’s New York City studio to learn how math and fashion really are inextricably intertwined. Aimed to eradicate stereotypes regarding math, this video proves that careers in fashion utilize math and its associated problem solving skill set on a daily basis. Thinking strategically and problem solving? Now that’s fashionable.
