Mathematics Of Nature And Nature Of Mathematics
AbstractIt is a common perception that mathematics is a dull subject with no connection to life. Also there is a myth that mathematics is a subject of study not for ordinary people rather for some abnormal, eccentric, serious, absent minded, fat, bald and bespectacled people with wrinkles on their foreheads who lead little or no social life. On the contrary Mathematics is quite interesting and is present in many aspects of life and anybody can study and understand mathematics if one believes in oneself. Mathematics has been thought of as a left cortical (brain)” subject, and identified as ‘linear’, analytical, logical, grey, cold, hard, complex, difficult, and BORING. In fact mathematics is a whole cortical-skill-subject that involves words, lines, logic, patterns, symmetry, rhythm, space, association and the over-riding concept of fun. Key words: Mathematics, Fun with mathematics, nature of mathematics
