Paul Lockhart Quotes

Paul Lockhart Quotes: Teaching is not about information. It's about having an honest intellectual relationship with your students. It requires no method, no tools, and no training.

Quotes about Paul Lockhart: Mathematics is about problems, and problems must be made the focus of a student's mathematical life.
