The 2019 BRIDGES conference on Mathematics, Art, Music, Architecture, Education, Culture will take place at Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria this year from July 16 to 20. I plan on being there and present a paper on Experiencing Mathematics through Astonishment. Here is the abstract!
- In this paper, I briefly explore the notion of astonishment as a way to experience mathematics as work-of-art. I engage with the concept through some scholarly work, and the discuss episodes from my mathematics education researches in which aspects can be observed, and questions can be raised.
