**Mathematics is not a spectator sport!**

Too often our previous experiences with mathematics have caused us to focus on memorization and mimicking procedures. But real mathematics includes so much more—all the thinking that leads up to those steps! Lecture encourages memorizing procedures without understanding the concepts. To learn on a deeper level, you must actively participate in the learning process. It takes time, practice, and a commitment to developing understanding. Instead of lecturing, we should be teaching by giving students the space to think and discuss, then providing personalized guidance when it is needed. Employers aren't interested in whether you can memorize how to solve a specific type of equation. They need people who can work in teams to figure out how to solve problems that haven't yet been solved.
