Abstract / Synopsis
The goal of teaching is to transform our students' understanding, much as the goal of acting is to transform the audience's reality. In this article we use the context of mathematics to explore connections between teaching and acting and how such connections can help our students learn not only mathematics, but about the nature of mathematics.
