Parker Martin Posted June 24, 2012 Share Posted June 24, 2012 Like most others here, I've been doing a lot of research on math education to help me make educational decisions for my children. Last night I was reading this and came to the realization that the math I loved in school is the real math, the sort of math you do if you if you pursue mathematics as a career. I was always led to believe that that was just fun and games, pure diversion. Would have been nice if an adult had told me that I could do that for a living. (I had plenty of adults tell me that I should go into math, but that was not enticing at all as math seemed to consist of figuring out how to do something and then doing the same thing 150 times. Tedium!) I'm sure many of you have had the same experience. Let's commiserate in our sorrow. ;) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
