Mathematics is everywhere – Connecting with other disciplines
This paper exhibits an analysis of inter - connections between mathematical concepts and concepts from other disciplines. At present every branch of mathematics has a potential for applicability in other fields of mathematics and other disciplines. Each and every discipline contains a compelling essential share with mathematical knowledge or understanding or application. Art and design, Design and technology, languages, history, geography, economics, sciences, music, Physical education, Religious education, citizenship- all these fields of human development are interlinking mathematics. All these, have posed a big challenge on the mathematics curricula at all levels of the education systems, teacher preparation and pedagogy. A balanced system between curriculum structure, pedagogical approach and collaboration of teachers training in mathematics and other disciplines is crucial point in context of the global progress. With this, students would see the purpose from the beginning and potentially remain more engaged throughout their lives. The 21st Century mathematics thinking is to more strengthen efforts to bridge the division lines within mathematics, to open up more for other disciplines and to foster the line of inter-discipline research. Therefore, the main challenges will be to explore children’s thinking in more depth when bridging home and school mathematics in the context of rich mathematical tasks, as well as to then utilize this knowledge in a meaningful environment for expression of student bureau.
