Learning to Be ...

"When students learn, they learn both information and a set of practices, and the two are inextricably related." (Learning and Understanding, 2002)

In order for students to learn mathematics well they need to participate in some of the same activities that mathematicians do. The same applies to history, geography, literature, and so on. Student learning is best informed not only by learning what to do, but by learning what it's like to be a mathematician, historian, geographer, writer, what have you. Doing and being are inextricably linked. In our time together we'll focus on helping our students not only to "do" math, history, literature, etc. but also give them a taste of what it's like to be a mathematician, historian or writer.
