swimming, mathematics, and life

Bookmark and Share

Just like one learns to swim by swimming, one learns mathematics best by doing mathematics .






But unlike swimming where the swimming style one learns is not a function of the type of water one swims on, the style of mathematical thinking and communicating one learns is a function of the mathematical tasks one engages in.





Like learning maths, one learns about life by engaging with it. The quality of one’s life is a function of the relationships one engages in.
