on Math Appeal
I left high school without an understanding of even basic algebra. I ended up in college graduating with a minor in mathematics. Learning about the fascinating history of mathematics in college made me fall in love with the subject. I think teaching math from the foundations of Euclid through Newton in high school would really help encourage students to learn math. I don't remember any teacher in high school mentioning anything about the origins of what they were trying to teach.
