ab: Mathematic subjects by themselves are not the goals of mathematics lessons
for pupils in regular classes. Rather the general education children
are learning by working with mathematics should be the aim of
mathematics teaching. Therefore reflection on mathematics and
mathematical thinking is necessary especially under the aspect of
humanistic holistic education. Remarkable points are: Mathematics as
system of concepts which give us clarifications and orientations,
mathematical thinking as special way to work on problems, mathematical
knowledge and skills as tools, the method of simulation, limitations of
mathematical modelling and the aesthetical effects of mathematical
objects. Mathematical teaching then can be reflected under these points
in five dimensions: Pragmatic dimension, Enlightment dimension, Social
dimension and dimension of Personal factors and Critical reflection.
