Background

Do you know that feeling of intense focus on an activity, that absorbs all your attention to the point where you don't notice time passing anymore? I want to explore the factors which allow mathematicians to enter a state of flow, as well as other aspects of mathematical activity that can make it so enjoyable. I am hoping to apply my findings to develop an alternative approach to mathematics education, which focuses on the intrinsic motivation and curiosity of the students to cultivate happiness through mathematics
