Mathematical Quotes

Words to reflect on

There are hundreds of great mathematical quotes from all kinds of people and this is just the beginning of a collection. They make for some excellent classroom display and just reading them out loud from time to time is terrific for helping students to think about the nature of mathematics. This is a generally good thing to do, but also helps students to come to terms with mathematics as an 'Area of knowledge' within their ToK studies. Please see some of the quotes/posters in a slideshow below. The posters can be downloaded and printed as colour PDFs from the links shown.
