[QUOTE]Originally posted by bdgee: [QB] [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. [/qb][/QUOTE]I accept your claim as a fact. If you were either a half decent mathematician or a responsible teacher of mathematics, you would have heard of him. The logic: if A or B, then C, implies if not C, then not A or B. Modern mathematics could not exists in its present state without the mathematics he did. Modern mathematics could not exists in its present state without the mathematics his students did. He and his students make up more than just a significant portion of all the officers and leaders of both the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Associationb of America, ever. His publications and the publications of his studentss make up more than just a significant portion of all the publications in mathematics in the 20th and the 21st centuries. The publications of his student's student's amount to even more. http://www.discovery.utexas.edu/rlm/method.html Ann Rand, to whom the site you propose as a teaching model is devoted, along with her extreme philosophical approach to philosophy (never mathematics or eaching) stopped being a significant force in intellectual pursuits about the same time as the demise of early 20th century fascisrt states. There is little doubt that Moore's contributions to mathematics and his teaching methods will survive long after the 21st century. Mathematics is that way, you see. It lives on forever and ever, though its creators are long dead....Euclid, Weirstrasse, Euler, Whyburn, Decart, Gause, Zeno, Sierpinsky, Lagrange, Moore (both E.H and R.L), Bing, , Pascal, Fermat, F.B. Jones, Kantor, Hilbert, and on and on and on - - -. [/QB][/QUOTE]
