Quantitative Curiosity

  • Sol Garfunkel
Part of the Realitätsbezüge im Mathematikunterricht book series (REIMA)


In this short piece we introduce the concept of quantitative curiosity. While no explicit definition is provided, we give several examples to help clarify the idea. And we argue the need for a research program to nurture what we believe is an important skill that can enhance the daily lives of our students’ years after their schooling has ended.
