The Proof

Find as many connections to the following three questions as you can in the video (bullet points are fine):

1. What are the analogies or metaphors that describe the process of doing mathematics and/or mathematical research?

2. What is a proof in the video?

3. What are the connections made to geometry in the video?

What Kind of Mathematician are You?

Think about the following as they relate to your mathematical experiences. Prepare to share an answer to one of them:
  • How would you describe the process of doing mathematics to someone else?
  • How do you get the flashes of insight that you need to do mathematics?
  • Do you prefer to collaborate or instead mostly work by yourself?
  • How would you describe what mathematics is and where it comes from?
