And discrete change. In early 1988 I heard that there was a project on “strands” in mathematics and I wrote a letter to Marcia Sward in more detail about my list. In 1990 there appeared the NRC/NAS book On the Shoulders of Giants edited by Lynn A. Steen. It offered five examples of the developmental power of deep mathematical ideas: (a) dimension, (b) quantity, (c) uncertainty, (d) shape, and (e) change. ” I had in mind things from modern discrete mathematics: directed networks, graph theory (road maps or elementary topology), edges on polytopes, path-following algorithms, system analysis type thinking, deterministic operations research, and many others.

And, on the other hand, Samuel Johnson in “The Adventurer, No. 126” (1754): Though learning may be conferred by solitude, its application must be attained by general converse . . he that never compares his notions with those of others . . very seldom discovers the objections which may be raised against his opinions . . he is only fondling an error . . Whether learning is done in an individual or collaborative setting, motivation of some sort is a crucial prerequisite. It is frequently asserted that we learn from experience.
