Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,

Our new blog by Prof. Phil Hotchkiss describes how we are using the NOVA movie "The Proof" to help students understand the process of doing mathematics. Most of them have never heard of a living mathematician! Read our students' reflections on the role of mistakes, emotion, collaboration, and creativity in the process of doing mathematics.
