MATHEMATICS

 

unnamed (2)

Nature is the root of  art, philosophy and science. Mathematics, just like the other disciplines, develop out of concrete data. Therefore, when investigated Mathematics can be seen in perfect harmony with the universe and nature. The fact that prehistoric artists  make use of calculations to find the golden ratio while having the aim of making smooth sculptures, human beings construct much more reliable planes,  wagons and satellites thanks to the perfect ratio in honeycombs that bees build show that mathematics is included in nature and our daily lives. According to the philosophy of education of our school, mathematics is not just a lesson which is not connected to our lives, or limited to only school and exams but a discipline which can be used actively to solve daily life problems and to ease the lives. From this point of view, in British Culture Colleges, the teaching of Mathematics occurs in classes and workshops, reinforced by thematic learning stations which provide fun and kinesthetic learning instead of occurring in strict class atmospheres. The aim of our school is to raise students who can use Mathematics as a tool in their daily lives, think analytically and like to learn Mathematics. In accordance with our philosophy of education, as Mathematics lessons are taught by professional teachers, lessons are also supported by clubs and activities.

Mathematics; is described as “the science which is divided into arithmetic, algebra and astronomy and which studies structure and feature of shapes, numbers and mass and the relations between them through reasoning.” But it is quite difficult to answer the question “What is Mathematics?” completely with one single description. It’s possible to explain what Mathematics is better by indicating its features and elements. The elements of Mathematics consist of logic, intuition, analysis, constructing, generality, individualism and esthetics. Based on this feature and elements we can remark this: Mathematics, is a reliable tool independent of time and place for gaining new information, explaining and inspecting the information that have been gained and inheriting the information from one generation to another. of Mathematics teaching and The general principals and aims of teaching Mathematics should be considered in each step of Mathematics teaching. Sensorial properties should be regarded in Mathematics teaching and students should be helped to develop positive attitude towards Mathematics and Mathematics lesson. Each principal of programmed education should be followed in Mathematics teaching.
