    Therefore teachers who can make transparent what they are talking about (cf. deļ¬nitions and precision), can explain what they ask students to learn (cf. reasoning and coherence), and can explain why students should learn it (cf. purposefulness) have a much better chance of opening up a dialogue with their students and inspiring them to participate in the doing of mathematics.

    Even just a few of the teachers who are really good at explaining, making processes not just transparent but exciting, can carry learners capable of self-paced study through lean years. Those needing more structure and light in between are out of luck. There are more and better self-study resources now – compared to my early years in the last ice age, but may not make enough difference without will or interest. I wondered about group work, but, according to the paper & comments, the strategy is not consistently satisfactory.
