The same argument holds for university teachers and researchers, I think.

I might have posted this already, but here it is again for George! One of my favourite texts written by a mathematician about mathematics and the way in which it is (but ought not be) taught.

P.S. This video, created by some very observant maths undergraduate, develops an already established tradition of video spoofs based on Bruno Ganz’s earth-shattering performance in the German historical film “The Downfall”. The video surfaced on the Internetz late yesterday night and caused uncontrollable midnight laughter in our sociological-mathematical household (and, I’m told, not only in ours). Not everyday I come across such superb fieldwork materials! I have no clue how to use it in research, though, so for now I will just keep laughing, if you excuse me.
