The secret intellectual history of mathematics | Aeon Essays
‘These foundations [of mathematics] are, moreover, a perpetual source of reflection and discovery for the masters of the science. Even in number system you will find material for long reflection. Remember that Leibniz did not disdain to occupy himself with it.’ – Paul Valéry, letter to Pierre Honnorat, 1942

Puzzles take many forms depending on many cognitive abilities, like wordplay, lateral thinking, arithmetic, and spatial reasoning. A certain class of puzzles depends on mental model alignment, or internalizing a set of rules for predicting and explaining observations of a system. Leveraging mental models creates a spectrum of experiences between puzzles, which have handcrafted, usually unique, solutions, and problems, which specify what counts as a solution within a wide solution space. Problems whose solutions are algorithms are programming problems. We observe a pattern in successful techniques for building accurate mental models through interaction---specifically, informative failure---and discuss its application to three points along this spectrum: puzzles, problems, and programs.
