I don’t love math nearly as much as I pretend I do when I’m teaching it or blogging about it or trying to enthuse my kids.
I just believe — ever since an eye-opening university-level Mathematics in Perspective course — that math is taught VERY badly, bumbled and fumbled and as a result we have this societal fear of what is, essentially, a great big GAME.
