The Education of Mathematics

Abu Darda


The objective of mathematics education is not only preparing
mathematicians but making well-informed citizens. This is a broad general
terms for objective of the teaching of mathematics. And, this might be
implemented as “accurate thorough knowledge” or “original logical
thinking”. So, teaching mathematics is not the conversation and
transmission of mathematical knowledge, but on the aim of preparing wellinformed
citizens trained in independent, critical thinking.
By the mathematics, sciences become simple, clearer, and easier to be
developed. The mathematics is often applied for solving any problem of
other field of sciences, either in the physics such as astronomy, chemistry,
technique; or social sciences such as economy, demography, and assurance.
Those all need an analysis reading ability.
Mathematical skill, therefore, relates strongly with the analysis
reading ability in the human intellectual structure. This study is about the
relationship between them. And, result of the study shows us as below:
Both Mathematical skill and analysis reading ability possess the “high type”
of thinking operation. Both also involve the same content of the abstract
intelligent, i.e. symbolic and semantic contents. Last but not least, both also
use the same product of thinking, i.e. units, classes, relations, and systems.
Both can be transformed and have an implication.
