I just picked up, Mr. Dewar recommended, Daniel Pink's "A Whole New Mind Why Right-Brainers Will Rule The Future" and it has got me thinking. I just started and it explains that the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body and the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body. You may not have known but the tight side of the brain sees things simultaneously. That section of the book made me think geometry isn't like the other math subjects. Geometry uses the right side of the brain. The left side of the brain is sequential and if you have me in class I line up everything in sequence. But Dan Pink even says that geometry requires seeing all parts of geometric shapes. I knew that math used the creative side of the brain and now I have proof.
It also makes reference to how we read and how it entails using the left side of the brain, because reading is interupting symbols in in a sequence. I started thinking of ways to use the right side of your brain while you read and have some ideas. If anyone has any ideas let me know what you think.
I also got Stephen Colbert's new book. Let me know if anyone has picked it up. Oh by the way the new Mansfield Borders doesn't open until Thursday. I found out the hard way.
