Not in my experience — the accounts of ‘true mathematics’ (as I understand it) are more the preserve of popular maths books and Medium articles, rather than teacher training and professional development.

Keen to get your thoughts on a) How closely school maths reflects the true nature of mathematics as you understand it and b) How far that understanding exists among teachers.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
