i definitely agree with you and since i am a young teacher in italy i
am struggling to change the wave which suffocate the desire for math
in students ...
i plan to cook some resource where math is taught in reverse order,
i.e. starting from real-young world and only after you show the theory
since i know many are on the same point of view, please let me know
how to get in contact with other teachers working in this direction
thank you anyway
