Farshid Safi shares how learning experiences and life experiences should be connected. We are all influenced by our life experiences, where we are engaged in sense-making, exploration, adjusting, and working with other people towards a goal. These life experiences can inform, and be the setting for, learning experiences in mathematics. He advises us all to be at least as patient with ourselves professionally and personally as we would be with our students.
