Some notions at Math-teach that, I believe, run counter to the approach in the above two articles: +++++ 'Guided Discovery is the Work of the Devil!' (I don't know who might have said this, but someone MUST have).
- -- "Children must be PUSHED (not ENCOURAGED) to learn math!!!" (Robert Hansen) (And, for all I know - all other subjects as well)
- -- "PUT THE EDUCATION MAFIA IN JAIL!" (Haim, who is alas no longer with us these days)
- -- "BLOW UP THE SCHOOLS OF EDUCATION!" (Wayne Bishop)(a.k.a. "I'll Huff and I'll Puff - and I'll Blow Your House Down!") +++++ The Scientific American is undoubtedly a member of that infamous 'Education Mafia' and those 'Discovery Crooks' - and maybe it is even a school of education fuhgodsake!
