Subject:   Teaching Mathematics as a Science
Author: Bethany
Date: Aug 5 2004
It seems that with so many of these cool tools now available it makes teaching
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?
