E. H. Moore influence?[edit]

I've heard that R.L. Moore, and another great "discovery learning" educator Arnold Ross, were both influenced by the teaching style of E.H. Moore. (R.L. Moore was a student of E.H. Moore, and Arnold Ross was a student of Dickson, who was a student of E.H. Moore.) If this is true, and anyone can supply details, it might be an interesting addition to this article.Singularitarian 10:25, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Earlier occurrences of the teaching style[edit]

Andre Weil, a renowned mathematician, recounts in his biography "The Apprenticeship of a Mathematician" an influential teacher from his childhood circa 1918. The description of the lessons is strikingly similar to that of the moore method.

I'm unsure how appropriate an addition this is to the entry, so I'm just noting it here for more experienced wikipidians to pick up one day.

List of Moore Method Users[edit]

(Modified) Moore Method is becoming quite popular these days. Is a list of people who use this technique beneficial to the article? (talk) 20:25, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

I assume you are questioning whether we should keep the "Current usage" section, as opposed to offering to add more examples. I've just tagged that section with {{cleanup-list}}. I don't object to keeping a few notable (and cited) examples, but the list has grown too large to be useful, IMO. - dcljr (talk) 22:59, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
