Mathematics is a human endeavor. That is from the title of a book by Harold Jacobs that I discovered early in my teaching career. That book changed the way I teach. I start off each term, in each course, with some simple examples that demonstrate this idea. I think this is more important now than it used to be. There is a push to have computers and electronic systems do the teaching for us, and this is a mistake: the electronic system that will replace a human math teacher has not been invented yet. Mathematics is not an electronic endeavor.
