What happens with all that maths? (Part 2)

Dunn, Peter K. (2004) What happens with all that maths? (Part 2). Teaching Mathematics, 29 (1). pp. 18-24. ISSN 0313-7767


For students to become excited about studying mathematics, it is important that mathematics is seen as useful at school. I once was of the view that the most interesting and useful applications of mathematics occurred after significant mathematical content had been studied. I hope, however, that the previous section has shown that this is not necessarily the case; even simple mathematical ideas have far reaching, important applications. So how can we show students this at school?
