Kontekst Przekazu w Matematyce

Jerzy Pogonowski


We introduce the concept of the context of transmission. It coversthe ways in which mathematical knowledge and mathematical abilities aretransmitted in education and popularization of mathematics. We stress therole of intuitive explanations in these processes. Several examples of suchexplanations are presented, related to: linguistic explanations, perception,empirical models, and internal explanations inside mathematics itself.
