“Let us climb peaks by all means, because their beauty attracts us; not because others have failed, nor because the summits stand 28000 ft above the sea…Let us approach the peaks with humility, and through finding the way to them…learn to solve their problems.”       Eric Shipton (1938)

“We don’t want our students to be third rate computers. We want them to be first rate problem solvers.” Conrad Wolfram (2013)

“It is not knowledge, but the act of learning, not the answer, but the act of getting there which grants the greatest pleasure.”   Carl Friedrich Gauss

Why did I start a blog?

1. To keep a journal of ideas, lessons, resources and reflections.

2. To engage in critical dialogue about teaching and learning ideas.
