mathematics much easier to teach math like a science class. It also seems that
the prevading philosophy of teaching and learning mathematics is pushing us as
educators in this direction, to make math more of a discovery process than just
giving students the concepts and trying to process them.
Personally, I think this is an exciting development in the teaching and learning
of mathematics as it brings the learning of mathematics much closer to what math
is, a science, the science of quantity.
What do you think?
