Thank you for your post.
I was recently ask...Hello. Thank you for your post.<br />I was recently asked: "<a href="https://writemypaper4me.co/do-my-homework-cheap/" rel="nofollow">can you do my homework for me</a>?" devoted to famous mathematicians. So your post, you can say, is just in the subject ...<br />Georg Kantor is an authoritative mathematician who introduced the concepts of quantitative and ordinal numerals. About Cantor came a lot of publications, one of which was a publication in the book "The Creators of Mathematics" and a note in "The History of Mathematics." He founded the German Mathematical Society, and most of his scientific work is still used.<br />There is another famous statement by Georg Cantor on mathematics: "The essence of mathematics is in its freedom."<br />You are right when you want to develop children's curiosity. But the fact is that sometimes, not all the questions asked by them, you know the answer. And then, really, without the help of the Internet can not do ...Margaret Watkinsnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7806043650549721218.post-17354364518378791112017-09-06T04:18:04.355-05:002017-09-06T04:18:04.355-05:00I didn't get that.

Thank you for including Cantor's picture also. With Google, I'd have that open discussion with the kids, of how fast it is to access information (and Google is Google because a lot of math went into its search engine), but when the answer is given too quickly it robs us of thinking deeply, like you say, so our classroom culture is "never tell an answer," and I remind students often of this. I had a student just this morning sharing, but before he started, he asked, "Am I just sharing my thinking or the answer?"<br /><br />Thanks, Rebecka, and it's an honor for me to feature your post this week at http://fawnnguyen.com/2012/09/06/20120905.aspxFawn Nguyenhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03605571262680195155noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7806043650549721218.post-14809209558674428862012-09-05T01:05:04.600-05:002012-09-05T01:05:04.600-05:00Most definitely--the internet is an amazing tool. ...Most definitely--the internet is an amazing tool.

&quo...Great quote from Cantor. Thanks for sharing.<br /><br />"One challenge that I face, however, is that my students are used to their curiosity being satiated so quickly and easily. If they want to know the answer to something, they can just Google it. On their phone. Right there."<br /><br />Maybe I'm overly optimistic here, but doesn't Google on their phones just give us the opportunity to ask more meaningful questions? That's a challenge and an opportunity of course. Dan Meyerhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/11323257310042023350noreply@blogger.com
