Mathematical Practice as Sculpture of Utopia: Models, Ignorance, and the Emancipated Spectator
Appelbaum, Peter
For the Learning of Mathematics, v32 n2 p14-19 2012
This article uses Ranciere's notion of the ignorant schoolmaster and McElheny's differentiation of artist's models from those of the architect and scientist to propose the reconceptualization of mathematics education as the support of emancipated spectators and sculptors of utopia.
