" I would like to thank you on behalf of the department and personally for all the work you have done with us. It has been an exceptionally good experience of Mathematics. I agree absolutely with the roles and responsibilities of teachers you mention, in helping the student develop an inquisitive mind also the skills to enjoy Mathematics. I truly believe that teachers have a significant role to play in helping students develop this. And yes this has to be the vibe from the teacher to the student from day one 'a thirst for Mathematics and its hidden beauty', so that they persevere with becoming even more independent in problem solving. A dream to have a SOW which is problem solving based linking the topics together, with your help this has started to develop. I continue to enjoy the ideas in your '100 ideas'. "
