Volumes, the MoMath book club
Join MoMath at Volumes, the MoMath book club, on Wednesday, January 17, 2018, to discuss A Mathematician's Lament by Paul Lockhart.
A Mathematician's Lament is a short book on the pedagogics and philosophy of mathematics by Paul Lockhart, originally a research mathematician, but for many years now, a math teacher at Saint Ann's School in Brooklyn, New York. Characterized as a strongly worded opinion piece arguing for an aesthetic, intuitive, and heuristic approach to teaching and the importance of mathematics teaching reforms, the book frames learning mathematics as an artistic and imaginative pursuit which is not reflected at all in the way the subject is taught in the American educational system.
