Mathematics Is a Spectator Sport
Foster, Colin; Williams, Helen
Mathematics Teaching Incorporating Micromath, n204 p40-41 Sep 2007
This article presents a conversation between two editors of "Mathematics Teaching Incorporating Micromath." Topics discussed include the 2004 Association of Teachers of Mathematics conference, titled "Mathematics is Not a Spectator Sport," and the thought of engaging in mathematics and what that might mean. One of the editors stresses the need to encourage students to value the paths that others have taken and to be prepared to "spectate" for a time without growing impatient.
