The Democratisation of Mathematical Education1

Nature volume 88, pages 396398 (18 January 1912) | Download Citation



THE work of the Mathematical Association, in connection with its activity in promoting the reform of mathematical teaching in our schools, necessarily involves the expenditure of much time and thought upon the detailed discussion of specific schemes for the improvement of the teaching in special departments of mathematical education. It is, however, well that we should sometimes reflect upon the more general aspects of our work; and perhaps a presidential address affords the most suitable occasion for reducing some such reflections to an explicit form, even though nothing essentially new can be said upon the matter.
