In this article, the author looks at ways of creating conditions to bring about learning. If one is to "arrange conditions to bring about learning," one needs written guidance and support systems. Two books that discusses how to arrange these conditions are: "Thinking Mathematically" by John Mason with Leone Burton and Kaye Stacey and "Starting Points" by Colin Banwell, Ken Saunders and Dick Tahta. Moreover, among the support groups available today is ACME (Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education). ACME is an independent committee which acts as a single voice for the mathematical community, seeking to improve the quality of education in schools and colleges. The ability to look at human activity in terms of awareness and functionings gives the people of today the ability to see new things and discover new hopes for the future. When teachers prepare themselves and work with each other in this new perspective, they will remain in contact with mathematics, with the mind, and with their students. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
