Welcome to Nils Ahbel’s webpage!

I teach mathematics at Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, MA.  I am interested in revitalizing mathematics by making it relevant to the lives of our students and preparing them for college, work, and the challenges of the 21st Century.

    Very inspiring keynote address. Your comments resonated significantly with my own evolving thoughts about the relevance of our present curriculum for all, including our very best students. You make a powerful case to force us to reexamine our priorities with students for whom the current system does not work.

    Well worth the trip to NCSSM to hear your address.

    Thank you,

    Thank you so much for coming to our school to share your experiences with the Alternative to Precalculus course. The two-day workshop allowed us to get the course up and running this year. In addition to time spent specifically on the content and execution of the course, we appreciated learning about practical teaching strategies, useful tech options, and the time spent considering our philosophy of high school math. It was a great way to get the school year started. Thanks again!
