A Chinese Proverb

W.V. Williams (1988)  in paraphrase of a Chinese Proverb:

  Tell me mathematics, and I will forget; show me mathematics and I may remember; involve me…and I will understand mathematics.  If I understand mathematics, I will be less likely to have math anxiety.  And if I become a teacher of mathematics, I can thus begin a cycle that will produce less math-anxious students for generations to come.
