I learned to show my youngest classes, and later also my pre-university seniors, that the most effective way to learn mathematics is through testing its arguments together in open discussion, explains Hannaford. This engages everyone in critical discourse without attacking anyones self-respect.
Educating Messiahs is a collection of essays that Hannaford previously published on Facebook and shared with former students. His advice champions creative thought and careful thinking rather than fact and figure memorization. By teaching students to think critically and debate respectfully, Hannaford hopes that future generations will learn to listen to differing opinions and pursue agreeable solutions for all.
The most dangerous obstacle to peace is the effect on societies and nations of certainty, warns Hannaford, in which different groups, now often within a host nation, are certain that they are right, and that everyone who disagrees with them is wrong.
