Class Central Tips

数学的重要特征是它的抽象性，这一特征是令人生畏的。但也正是这一特征可以使人们在繁杂的世界中逐步懂得宇宙深处伟大设计图的语言；可以用理性的思维达到超出人类感官所及的宇宙的根本。而这一切正是数学的魅力所在，也是数学在人类历史上起着其它科学不可替代作用的重要原因。但这也是很多学生畏惧数学或学习数学的困难所在。

Abstraction in mathematics, one of its most important features, can often seem forbidding. However, this abstract thinking also reveals the great mystery of the Universe and demonstrates fundamentally why mathematics is both charming and irreplaceable. Unfortunately, it makes too many students afraid of mathematics and causes trouble for the study of mathematics.

本课程针对这一情况，试图和学生一起从思想上重走一遍前辈们走过的路，作一次轻松的数学之旅。在这一旅途中我们不断揭示一些概念和数学思想形成的过程和历史，理解数学抽象的必要性和魅力，真实体会数学抽象所表现出的人类心智的荣耀，潜移默化地从中培养数学抽象的能力。并试图就一些简单的数学例子介绍数学抽象的一些特点，并试图就学习数学时，如何克服抽象带来的困难谈一些看法。主讲人有信心使这门课程成为一次轻松的“抽象”旅游。并希望对学生的数学课程的学习和数学思维的形成，在心理和心智上都有所帮助。

In this course, I try to walk along its history together with students to create a relaxed tour of mathematical concepts and thinking. This course will share the history and process of the formation of some mathematical concepts and philosophy, help students to understand the need for abstraction in mathematics, and teach students how to enjoy what is behind these abstract concepts so that they may handle them more confidently. We also try to show certain features of abstraction in mathematics through some simple examples that will teach students how to overcome common difficulties. I am confident this course will be enjoyable and helpful for those studying mathematics and the formation of mathematical thinking.

In this journey, the important thing is the interaction between heart and nature and heart and heart, instead of the number of viewpoints. We do not expect that you will master many mathematical concepts but hope you will learn about and develop an appreciation for the abstraction of mathematics.
