Today my Euclidean Geometry class discussed the construction of a kite with a compass and straightedge. They had four different constructions, all of them different from the one I had in mind. And these constructions led us to interesting discussions and new questions. It was a truly glorious day. I love teaching this class so much.
Anyway, it made me think of this song, so I played it in class. I had forgotten the two lines of dialogue right before the song starts, but they are appropriate too. I hope I can get my students to this state of wonder and excitement. This particular course makes me feel this way a lot.
