Learning through video clips

The aim of the first three activities was to help you to answer the question ‘What does the term mathematics mean to you?’ Soon you will be asked to view a short video sequence that shows a collection of other people's responses to this question and others that you are trying to answer in this course.

Video clips are used in many OpenLearn units when it is the most suitable way of introducing some aspect of the topic being studied. Here are some of the reasons why video is us

1 Forces for development

Working in mathematics education involves a sense of both past and future, and how the two combine to influence the present. It may seem that, because the past has already happened, it cannot be altered; however, you can alter how you perceive the past, and what lessons you take from it. Each of us has a personal past in mathematics education—the particular events of our personal lives, who taught us, where, what and how they taught us, and what we took from the experiences. Each of us also

3.3 Senses: vision

Vision needs to be effective to spot prey, and in many species to allow precise calculation of distances when it comes to the final pounce. In terms of success, an individual can't 'afford' too many failures; the energy expended in the chase needs to be more than compensated for by the energy gained from the food source. The most effective way of judging distance is with stereoscopic vision, i.e. an ability to see in depth, and this depends on the eyes being sufficiently far forward to allow

1.2.1 Planning your search

Your approach to searching will depend to a great extent on what kind of person you are. In an ideal world, when searching for information for a specific purpose, we would all find what exactly we were looking for at the first attempt, especially if we are in a hurry. However, it’s always a good idea to have some kind of plan when you are searching for information, if only to help you plan your time and make sure you find the information you need. If I was starting to search for material on

1.4.1 Dealing meaningfully with holism

Ulrich's primary observation is quite straightforward. Any system as a human construct is unable to capture the total complexity of interrelationships and interdependencies that make up the real world. This idea resonates with the paradox of framing referred to by Moore. It also resonates with Ilan Kapoor's reference to the work of Slavoj Žižek, quoted earlier: ‘Reality is what we (mistakenly) take to be wholeness or harmony, while the Real denotes the impossibility of wholeness’ (Kapoo
