OHAC 01: Art is in the Argument

In this episode we discuss the essay A Mathematician’s Lament by Paul Lockhart, which lays out interesting ideas about mathematics education. We then talk about whether the current public education system is any good, if we can anthropomorphize society. We also learn two new words.
