Dan Finkel suggested principles of extraordinary math teaching:

Math can the best of time or the worst of time.

1) Start with a question.

2) Thinking happens only when you have time to struggle.

3) (Teacher), you are not the answer key.

4) Say yes to your students’ ideas.

5) Play!

A marvelous quotation is attributed to the most brilliant scientist of the modern age, Albert Einstein: “Play is the highest form of research.”
