ab: Summary: The motivation of students is of great import to mathematics
teachers. Such an abstract powerful language needs to be valued or
students will not wish to study it. This article argues that
mathematics may be better appreciated through the beauty of the
language in which problems are written, respect for the cultures of
others and through relevance to our studentsâ€™ lives. (ERIC)
