    Very interesting to know about Katherine Johnson, 'power of computing', great personality and wonderful teacher. One need to learn how to learn and then you want to want to know. Teach the student how to solve the problems rather than how to get the answer which most of the teacher does to complete the syllabus which is incorrect and the student fail to aspire for real learning on how to solve the complex problems. It's very true that learning take place only when the student has interest in it. Be constantly curious. Wonderful conversation worth spending time to listen to KGJ..!!!

  25. Anita Swanson says
