... there is nothing as dreamy and poetic, nothing as radical, subversive, and psychedelic, as mathematics. ~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
(Math) allows more freedom of expression than poetry, art, or music. Math is the purest of the arts, ...~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
Mathematicians enjoy thinking about the simplest possible things, and the simplest possible things are imaginary. ~Lockharts

I’m just playing. That’s what math is— wondering, playing, amusing yourself with your imagination. ~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
In mathematics: things are what you want them to be. You have endless choices; there is no reality to get in your way.~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
(Math)’s not at all like science. There’s no experiment I can do w test tubes & equipment & whatnot that will tell me the truth.~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
The only way to get at the truth about our imaginations is to use our imaginations, and that is hard work.~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
mathematician’s art: asking simple & elegant Q's about our imaginary creations, & crafting satisfying & beautiful explanations.~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
There is really nothing else quite like this realm of pure idea; it’s fascinating, it’s fun, and it’s free! ~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
I couldn’t see, and then all of a sudden I could.~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
Somehow, I was able to create a profound simple beauty out of nothing, and change myself in the process.~Lockharts That IS art!
Iwan @iwanpranoto
This is why it is so heartbreaking to see what is being done to mathematics in school.~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
This rich & fascinating adventure of the imagination's been reduced to a sterile set of “facts” to be memorized & procedures to be followed.
Iwan @iwanpranoto
The art (of math) is not in the “truth” but in the explanation, the argument.~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
Mathematics is *the art of explanation.* ~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
I’m complaining about the lack of mathematics in our mathematics classes.~Lockharts I am too!
Iwan @iwanpranoto
If ur art teacher were to tell u that painting is all about filling in numbered regions, u'd know that something's wrong.~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
But if ur math teacher gives u the impression ..that math is abt formulas & defs & memorizing algorithms, who'll set u straight?~Lockharts
Iwan @iwanpranoto
Banyak guru matematika sebenarnya mengajarkan pseudo-mathematics, bukan matematika. Hanya kumpulan rumus & prosedur.
Iwan @iwanpranoto
Bbrp siswa yg COCOK dg cara pembelajaran pseudo-math itu, sukses dlm pendidikan kita, & dihargai "good at math".
Iwan @iwanpranoto
siswa2 ini tdk mau terima bhw matematika membutuhkan kreatifitas.
Iwan @iwanpranoto
Tp pd saat siswa2 "good at math" ini studi math betulan di PT, mrk br sdr bhw mrk hny hafal rumus dan akurat menerapkan prosedur belaka.
Iwan @iwanpranoto
Siswa2 "good at math" ini br sadar bhw mrk tak pnya bakat dlm math sbnrnya, mrk hny "patuh" mengikuti perintah.
Iwan @iwanpranoto
Math is also like novels, paintings, etc. created by men. Thus, they must be critcized. They're NOT perfect.
Iwan @iwanpranoto
Math is not about following directions, it’s about making new directions.~Lockharts
