Advanced Mathematics from an Elementary Standpoint.
Mosquera, Julio C.
Mathematics Educator, v3 n1 p11-15 Win 1992
Presents four areas of advanced mathematical research (fuzzy set theory, subjective probability, search theory, and Voronoi diagrams) that are proposed for introduction into teacher education programs from an elementary, survey perspective without the intention of accomplishing formal mathematical research, thereby challenging teachers' beliefs about mathematics, promoting reflection on those beliefs, and leading them to eventual changes of perspective.
