Mathematics in Education
[This version of my Proposal has been written by ECA (Commission for Educational and Cultural Affairs of US Dpt. of State) after the denial of the previous version; I include it only partially; It looks like an interview !]
"The Project looks for Mathematical Modeling methods applicable to sub-domains of different sciences in an uniform way (isomorphic topics). It stimulates the innovative idea of using this unification when teaching.
WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE OR NEED YOUR PROJECT WILL ADDRESS
AND WHAT INNOVATIVE METHODS WILL YOU EMPLOY?
Describe the specific need or challenge that your team will address with this project.
The Project looks for Mathematical Modeling methods applicable to sub-domains of different sciences in an uniform way (isomorphic topics). It stimulates the innovative idea of using this unification when teaching.
Briefly describe the specific solution or approach to address the need or challenge and explain why it is innovative.
1 - producing new Theorems in pure Mathematics;
2 - producing new Mathematical Modeling methods;
3 - finding new arias where the already existing modeling methods applies;
4 - finding unexpected analogies in science through mathematical modeling;
5 - proposing new methods to distribute the knowledge around the world as part of the extended and continuous education, like teaching using mathematical analogies coming from Mathematical Modeling;
6 - finding groups of sub-disciplines which can be taught together from Mathematical Modeling point of view, being isomorphic;
7 - the study and use of the e-learning methods, increasing their impact;
8 - the writing of books authored by some of the participants to the Conferences (including Proceeding with the materials of the Conferences);
9 - built networks of Universities/Research Institutions on the international programs in order to implement the previous expected results through students, teachers, and faculty members.
How will the project impact your community? What changes (in people, institutions, attitudes, practices) do you think you will see?
A: put together mathematicians and experts from several other sciences (students and seniors) aiming to apply Mathematics in their activities;
B: point out essential methods in Mathematical Modeling and spread them around the world using e-learning,courses,books,and International Networks of Universities, insuring an expanded access to continuous education;
C: produce contributions to a better understanding of the role and importance of Mathematics at a global level;namely,understanding that Mathematics is mainly an "Art for Welfare", both from technological,economical,and social point of view;
D: find isomorphic sub-domains from completely different sciences,using the methods of Mathematical Modeling(seen in some kind of opposition with the usual notion of Applied Mathematics in a concrete modeled topic); understanding the essence of such kind of things;
E: produce,teach,and spread around the world courses of Mathematical Modeling with applications in sciences and didactics, using D.
WHO WILL BE INVOLVED?
Beneficiaries: who are your target groups (or communities) and how many people will directly benefit from your project?
The beneficiaries of the resuts of the Project will be the whole societies, through the educational systems. Both the High Schools and Universities, and the whole populations will benefit through e-learning and popularization books.The courses promoted will consider together various arias of science, which are isomorphic(similarly mathematically modelable).There are already some examples:Mathematical Economics and Termodynamics, parts of Quantum Physics and Mathematical Economics.Moreover, a similar way of passing from Continous Mechanics to Quantum Mechanics and from Continuum Economics(introduced by the Nobel laureate R.Aumann) to finite economies seen as games will be analysed using Non-standard Analysis. The beneficiaries will be, beside Education, many other research institutions and industries.This project is essentially an "Education and Research" Project, in the (unofficial) sense of the so-called Research Universities (Harvard,MIT, Stanford, etc.),where the Research part is essential.
