A Mathematician's Lament

A Mathematician's Lament: How School Cheats Us Out of Our Most Fascinating and Imaginative Art FormA Mathematician's Lament: How School Cheats Us Out of Our Most Fascinating and Imaginative Art Form by Paul Lockhart

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A rather passionate argument about what is wrong with math education in our society. The book is based on an earlier article written by the author. The 1st part of the book is a repeat of the article, "A Mathematician's Lament", while the 2nd part is the author trying to show what is wonderful and beautiful about mathematical discovery through the use of some simple examples.
