We read to know ‘how to do it’, in a great variety of matters according to our needs and interests: cooking, gardening, household ‘do-it-yourself’, how to use our new word-processor. Sometimes we read simply to know: about life before man, about the solar system, about the lives of great men and women. This knowledge is not of any obvious practical value, but it enlarges and enriches our minds, and this we find sufficient reason in itself. And we read simply for entertainment: adventures, romances, detective stories, science fiction, or whatever our tastes may be.

Likewise, the psychometric models of intelligence on which, as a mature student, I learnt to pass my exams, were not such as could be applied to the learning process. Measurement may tell us ‘how much’ intelligence a person has, but it does not tell us what it is they have this amount of. The use of a noun here tends to mislead, unless it is expanded. It is helpful to compare this with our use of the word ‘memory’. When we say that someone has a good memory, we mean that this person is well able to take in information, organize it, store it, and retrieve from his large memory store just what he needs at any particular time.

Were you encouraged to ask questions if there was something you did not understand? 2 Choose one or more other subjects which you have learnt, not necessarily academic. Within the same subject area, identify some parts for which habit learning would be the most effective kind, and others for which intelligent learning should be used. Compare the results of your own analysis with the ways in which you were taught. 48 3 The formation of mathematical concepts The special demands of mathematics The mathematician Henri Poincaré, in his essay ‘Mathematical creation’, wrote: A first fact should surprise us, or rather would surprise us if we were not so used to it.
