I learned math mainly by memorization--I could remember well so I did well in math from k-12. It wasn't until I started teaching Investigations to elementary school students that my interest in math grew and I began to see math as much more than memorization. Also, the terrific opportunity to be involved in a discrete math program for teachers further developed my interest in mathematics. The college-level instructors and the manner in which the course was taught over a period of several months was both challenging and motivating.
Hence, now as I begin to read and explore math education and math in general with greater depth, I've decided to create a Math Exploration blog post to list links and comments related to this investigation. If you have links to add or thoughts to share, please comment.
