Link: A math op-ed, circa 1996

By Suzanne Sutton. Here’s a quote:

It is among the greatest ironies of education that a subject so graceful and elegant, so able to inspire and bolster confidence, and so useful for living a joyous and effective life, should be presented in a manner that strips it of its substance and glory, and leaves students feeling bludgeoned and inept, convinced they “stink at math”, unaware of its beauty, or their own precious abilities.
