Creativity and Mathematics

Something I found my self saying.....

'It is less a question of identifying when one can be creative with mathematics than it is recognising that mathematics, and doing mathematics, is inherently creative.  For a given mathematical scenario, success is less about 'Knowing what we are supposed to do' and more about speculating on things that we could do. Doing mathematics is about taking bits of mathematical information, and putting them together in various ways to create new bits of mathematical information.' The very essence of constructing knowledge in mathematics is a creative process.
