Another look at mathematics in 2017

Postby Joseph Malkevitch » Thu Jan 04, 2018 12:14 pm

The nature of mathematics is indeed different from that of other academic disciplines despite the fact that the curriculum of K-12 mathematics does little to shed much light on why mathematics is so special.

Here is an article about what was special in mathematics in 2017 but points to the special nature of mathematics as being part of the story.
