Discourse in Mathematics

I am a junior in mathematics education at Blue Mountain College in
Mississippi. I am working on an honor's project, researching discovery
and reception teaching methods. I'm finding your site very interesting
but I am wondering if your use of discourse is the same as the
Socratic method, and if not how does it differ? Also, do you consider
your method a discovery or reception method? Finally, may I quote you
in my paper?

Thank You,
Pam Cockrell
