[QUOTE]Originally posted by Munchkin Man: [QB] [QUOTE]Originally posted by bdgee: [qb] Quoting R.L. Moore, known as the greatest teacher of mathematics that ever lived, "One teaches because it is his calling, one does mathematics because one can't not do mathematics".[/qb][/QUOTE]_____ The greatest teacher of mathematics who ever lived? The Munchkin Man never even heard of him. The Munchkin Man just looked him up on Wikipedia. No wonder the Munchkin Man had never heard of him. He was a "constructivist" The Munchkin Man is a "traditionalist." The Munchkin Man believes in direct instruction. The Munchkin Man believes in teacher-led instruction instead of student-centered instruction. The Munchkin Man was a "sage on the stage" instead of a "guide by the side." Have you ever heard of "The Math Wars?" Check out this link and learn something: http://www.ios.org/showcontent.aspx?ct=245&h=53 Here is the Munchkin Man's favorite mathematics teaching web site: http://www.mathematicallycorrect.com/ This is the side of "The Math Wars" that the Munchkin Man is on. They think like the Munchkin Man does. They also tend to vote Republican. Now here is a link to the "enemy" side: http://www.mathematicallysane.com/home.asp These people think like you and your hero R.L. Moore do. They also tend to vote Democrat. The bottom line is that you and the Munchkin Man come from two entirely different philosophical camps. Best Wishes, Munchkin Man [/QB][/QUOTE]
