From the perspective of our brain, learning and doing are just two different verbs that refer to the same mental process.I like that. It's from Jonah Lehrer's article in Seed on how high school algebra should be taught. I really enjoyed reading it. The victims of math education as we know it [are you reading here Ms. Marcotte?] would want to see it implemented...but they are not the readers attracted to the article. As a nerd who always enjoyed math, I read it but would not have benefited much if it had been the way math was taught when I went to high school.
