Today I have I decide to write on a subject that it has to do with the mathematical knowledge, but one is not numbers, sets, area of triangles, or all those subjects teach that us in the school. Then in question? One is the world-wide phobia that has many students by the mathematical ones. immediately tendriamos that to ask to us: what is the reason? exists a world-wide conspiracy on the part of which they teach the mathematical ones, so that this is difficult to understand on the part of the students? Sincerely I prefer not to believe this, but I am witness of which many universities of many countries have ” teachers estrellas”. But who are the masterful stars? They are those ones in charge to make the filter in the university race, mainly when there are but students of whom deberia to have. These teachers identify themselves because they are implacable at the time of the examination, since they place mathematical exercises of high level, that perhaps only the one that it invention or they podrian to solve it. Like engineering student, I was witness of this, since teniamos reference of frightful ” masterful star of third semestre” that he was ” destacado” because of an average of thirty or forty students who appeared to their course, about two or only three tenian the posiblidad to approve their course of calculation or mathematical integrals.
Now I ask myself Is this the true philosophy of the mathematical knowledge? sincerely not I create it and I say it by philosophy that applies the Japaneses, about to understand mathematician, since for them it is a process that the student must step by step fulfill and the best thing of this philosophy, is that the student only happened to the next level, until his teacher has obtained who this student has understood the subject, that is to say a little but work for the teachers Japanese and not like in our Latin America, that the teacher has become ” qualifier of exercises matematicos” , this is hard to recognize, but we must confront it to begin to change. I am certainly the mathematical ones are not difficult, because I have had the happiness to include/understand this science and that we must give an educative approach him totally different from which this occurring him, but this mission is not only of the teachers, also it corresponds to the students to leave panic the psychological one to this matter and first that deberia to take off of the language is that famous frasecita of which ” I am bad for matematicas”. when we begin to watch it with other eyes and another thought, of insurance it would increase I number of students who began ” to understand the language matematico”. this mathematician is the secret of understanding. It is possible to us to begin this task and for this many governments they sincerely deberian to reconstruct the form in which one evaluates the students, since but it is worth to understand few things for all the life, that to understand very many things, only for an examination, who to the few hours habra forgotten to us. I wait for this writing serves as reflection and analysis for which they wish an educative change in the mathematical ones which it favors understanding of our next generations.
