ab: Summary: The Nobel prize winning physicist Richard Feynman (2007) famously
enthused about "the pleasure of finding things out". In day-to-day
classroom life, however, it is easy to lose and undervalue this
pleasure in the process, as opposed to products, of mathematics.
Finding things out involves a journey and is often where the learning
takes place. Nurturing and valuing those ideas is at the heart of using
and applying mathematics. The author finds a place for the process in
the primary classroom. (ERIC)
