That makes sense to me even though I never made it to geometry in school... true story.wellis68https://www.blogger.com/profile/06087588494600746854noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11928317.post-55617304397455515062011-03-20T16:23:16.421-04:002011-03-20T16:23:16.421-04:00When I work with my geometry students, I always te...When I work with my geometry students, I always tell them the process and how you get to the conclusion is more important than the conclusion itself. Geometry is interesting because it is all built around theorems and presuppositions (mathematicians calls them "postulates") that are pretty much what you are calling starting points. Also, when I prepared students for the high school exit exam, they would try to memorize the answers on the diagonistic test rather than learn how to do the problems.<br /><br />I'm not saying theology is like math, but I am saying they are similar in that the process of finding the answer is much more important than having the right answer without having gone through the process.Dannyhttp://dkam136.comnoreply@blogger.com
