Can We Make Mathematics Intelligible?
Boas, R. P.
American Mathematical Monthly, v88 n10 p727-31 Dec 1981
Ideas on why many nonmathematicians have trouble understanding mathematics are expressed. The focus is on the means that should be used when mathematicians, particularly teachers of mathematics, want to communicate with others. The point is made that teachers should understand their audiences if they wish to communicate with them. (MP)
