Using and applying mathematics. (English)
Math. Teach. (Derby), No. 224, 12-13 (2011).
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)
