Author:David R. Garcia
Description: Garcia writes in this article that unlike some of the ancients who revered mathematics for its beauty and mental exercise, Americans tend as a culture to have a very pragmatic attitude toward math. Many might appreciate its value for what material results it can bring but regard it as almost a necessary evil towards the goal of producing beneficial visible results. Contents: The Problem; A Broad Solution; Teachers; Specific Solutions; Learning Math. By David R. Garcia, Imphilo Clinic, Manzini, Swaziland, Africa.
