Topic (follow-up to Thursday, 14th October 2010): Does the nature of mathematics change as students get older or is it only the teaching methods that change? As it happened on Monday, 18th October 2010, 19:30 - 21:00 GMT

RT @ColinTGraham: Tonight's topic is: "Does the nature of mathematics change as students get older or is it only the teaching methods that change?" #mathchat

RT @republicofmath: My point is a simple one: we lose a lot by ignoring the very real developmental aspect of math & developmental aspect of kids. #mathchat

RT @ColinTGraham: Playing Devil's Advocate: Are there certain techniques or methods which are always successful and so should not be changed? #mathchat

RT @ColinTGraham: @suburbanlion Convincing people is not the same as convincing mathematicians! Visual 'proofs' are often the most effective. #mathchat

RT @BE_PURE: Attention Parents...#mathchat is happening now. Educators are talking math/math strategies in classroom. Worth taking a look at, you think!

Does the nature of mathematics change as students get older or is it only the teaching methods that change?
