"Even though it is hard, Math teachers must find ways to let the Math music flow around the room. What student wants to just manipulate letters and numbers and memorize steps? You want to know why many students say "I hate Math"? It is because they do not hear the music, all they are doing is writing notes."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
