Beyond the Formula

Formulas should not be a substitute for reasoning. With practice, we can see how each formula tells a story — and choose whether and when to use them.

In the right habit of mind formulas tell stories about their subject. By attending to — or even inventing — contexts, formulas give us and the students we serve meaningful insight into our disciplines.
