(by Eileen Dombrowski, from OUP blog) Is the study of mathematics really a gateway toward empathy? I’m not fully convinced by the argument presented by mathematician Roger Antonsen, but I like him for making need all the empathy we can get in our world. Certainly, his mathematical visualizations do demonstrate the importance of mental flexibility and imagination in mathematics, and do. A Gateway to Modern Geometry: The Poincare Half-Plane Abstract.

Passage to Abstract Mathematics facilitates the transition from introductory mathematics courses to the more abstract work that occurs in advanced courses.

The text covers logic, proof, numbers, sets, induction, functions, cardinality, and more–material which instructors of upper-level courses often presume their students have already mastered but is generally missing from lower. Foundations of mathematics is the study of the philosophical and logical and/or algorithmic basis of mathematics, or, in a broader sense, the mathematical investigation of what underlies the philosophical theories concerning the nature of mathematics.

In this latter sense, the distinction between foundations of mathematics and philosophy of mathematics turns out to be quite vague. mathematics (thus also about “applied”) only if such a modeling breeds independent and new abstract mathematical model that exists independently, regardless of the physical world from which it Author: Radoslav Dimitric.

Abstract. Comparison is a fundamental cognitive process that supports learning in a variety of domains. To leverage comparison in mathematics instruction, evidence-based guidelines are needed for how to use comparison effectively.

In this chapter, we review our classroom-based research on using comparison to help students learn mathematics. A Bridge to Abstract Mathematics will prepare the mathematical novice to explore the universe of abstract mathematics.

Mathematics is a science that concerns theorems that must be proved within the constraints of a logical system of axioms and definitions, rather than theories that must be tested, revised, and retested.

Readers will learn how to read mathematics beyond popular computational. “The book intertwines two stories — one architectural, one mathematical — into an interlaced fabric,” Hahn said. “On the one hand, mathematics enhances the understanding of architecture; on the other, the architecture is an attractive stage that.
