'This book is a fabulous and timely contribution. It is a much-needed and radical critique of current embodied approaches within mathematics education, arguing that such approaches have, in large part, retained the very splits (inner/outer, individual/social) that they hoped to by: The order. The fluidity. The correctness. The truthworthiness. When you are deep reading a book, you can imagine the characters doing their stuff, right? How they are dressed how the feel. Exactly the same in math. You can see a ball then you can.

AESTHETIC VALUES IN MATHEMATICS: A VALUE-ORIENTED EPISTEMOLOGY Nathalie Sinclair Simon Fraser University Much has been said on matter of aesthetics and mathematics—perhaps most commonly articulated in relation to properties such as ‘beauty’ and ‘elegance,’ which are used to distinguish good from not-so-good mathematical Size: KB.

The color pictures are well presented; the text is easy to read. Format: Hardcover. The essays in this book explore the ancient affinity between the mathematical and the aesthetic, focusing on the fundamental connections between these two modes of reasoning and communicating.

From historical, philosophical and psychological perspectives, with particular attention to certain mathematical areas such as geometry and analysis, the authors examine the ways in which the aesthetic is ever present in mathematical thinking and contributes to the growth and value of mathematical.

This book describes the relationship between science and poetry in the Hellenistic period by analysing the stylistic features of Hellenistic mathematics and then showing how they can be understood within the context of Hellenistic poetry.

Mathematics and Beauty: Aesthetic Approaches to Teaching Children Nathalie Sinclair fNathalie Sinclair makes a compelling case for the inclusion of the aesthetic in the teaching and learning of mathematics, and illuminates how the materials and approaches we use in the mathematics classroom can be enriched for the benefit of all learners.

Mathematicians often express this pleasure by describing mathematics (or, at least, some aspect of mathematics) as beautiful. They might also describe mathematics as an art form (e.g., a position taken by G.

Hardy) or, at a minimum, as a creative.

Aesthetic computing explores the way art and aesthetics can play a role in different areas of computer science. In the last decade, some researchers in mathematics education have begun to study the importance of aesthetics for children's doing and learning of mathematics, showing that aesthetics plays a role in children's mathematical thinking as it does in mathematicians’ thinking (e.g., Hersh and John-Steiner,Mack,Mack,Sinclair Cited by: 4.
