ion than when we employ errors as springboards for technical explorations of a mathematical topic. Using errors as motivation and means for inquiry into the nature of mathematics could improve students' understanding of mathematics as a discipline. As Petrie [1970] and Martin [1970] pointed out, understanding a subject involves much more than simply "learning with understanding" its basic content. It includes understanding its philosophy, the methodology employed, the scope and limitations of… CONTINUE READING
