R. L. Moore (Spectrum Series)

Review Moore was an inspirational teacher, totally devoted to his students, more so than any other teacher I've known. -- Richard D. Anderson, Louisiana State University (Emeritus)The Moore Method is, I am convinced, the right way to teach anything and everything. -- Paul R. Halmos, Santa Clara UniversityThis personal history is a study in the art of teaching and the discovery and nurture of talent. -- Albert C. Lewis, C. S. Peirce Edition Project R. L. Moore: Mathematician and Teacher presents a full and frank biography of a mathematician recognized as one of the principal figures in the 20th Century progression of the American school of point set topology. He was equally well known as creator of the Moore Method (no textbooks, no lectures, no conferring) in which there is a current and growing revival of interest and modified application under inquiry-based learning projects in both the United States and the United Kingdom. Parker draws on oral history, with first-person recollections from many leading figures in the American mathematics community of the last half-century. The story embraces some of the most famous and influential mathematical names in America and Europe from the late 1900s in what is undoubtedly a lively account of this controversial figure once described as Mr. Chips with Attitude. About the Author British author John Parker has been a journalist and writer all his working life.. To date, he has published 28 books in hardback which have appeared in 64 editions in the UK and more than 40 international editions.
