New Challenges in the Teaching of Mathematics.
Bourguignon, Jean Pierre
The manifold but discrete presence of mathematics in many objects or services imposes new constraints to the teaching of mathematics. If citizens need to be comfortable in various situations with a variety of mathematical tools, the learning of mathematics requires that one starts with simple concepts. This paper proposes some solutions to solve this dilemma. (Author/KHR)
