Conrad Wolfram: Teaching kids real math with computers
An interesting talk, but i don't completely agree with Conrad. We should teach math and use computers to stimulate and illustrate math problem and solutions, BUT, we should not teach computer-math. By teaching math (and other analytic in nature subjects) we are helping the brain to grow and develop to be able to understand complex math (and other) problems. It's like teaching someone how to fish as oppose to giving him fishes every day. By not teaching him how to fish, we are telling him: "relax, we'll get you your fish every day, you don't have to do anything"... When we show him how to fish, he gets excited and wants to learn more and might even come up with his own ideas.
