[QUOTE]Originally posted by bdgee: [QB] I've had many mathematics students and I can promise you each any every one of them understood I love the stuff. Hell, you couldn't know as much as I do without loving it. And if you don't love the students loving it, they won't.....they won't so much as offer a glimmer of interest. You can grade them, but you won't teach them. With deep commitement it is possible to light that flame of desire in students, too. But not if they are assured that everything comes down to a grade. The following quote is not from R.L. Moore, it is from bdgee, but it is one he approved of: "A classroom is not a place to teach. It is a place to meet people that you teach in the hallways". Mathematics is far too difficult a subject to learn within the time constraints of a class. It caannot be learned as a compilization of facts and techniques. It IS a contact sport. It lives..... From Isaack Walton's [i]The Complete Angler, "Angling may be said to be so like the mathematics that it can never be fully learnt". [/QB][/QUOTE]
