Book Description

This open access book provides an overview of Felix Klein's ideas, highlighting developments in university teaching and school mathematics related to Klein's thoughts, stemming from the last century. It discusses the meaning, importance and the legacy of Klein's ideas today and in the future, within an international, global context.

The book shows that many of Klein's ideas can be reinterpreted in the context of the current situation, and offers tips and advice for dealing with current problems in teacher education and teaching mathematics in secondary schools. It proves that old ideas are timeless, but that it takes competent, committed and assertive individuals to bring these ideas to life.

Throughout his professional life, Felix Klein emphasised the importance of reflecting upon mathematics teaching and learning from both a mathematical and a psychological or educational point of view. He also strongly promoted the modernisation of mathematics in the classroom, and developed ideas on university lectures for student teachers, which he later consolidated at the beginning of the last century in the three books on elementary mathematics from a higher standpoint.

    A course introducing the idea of mathematical discovery, especially to students who may not be particularly enthused about mathematics as yet, in which the students could actually participate in the discovery of mathematics.

  • Topological Groups: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow (Sidney A. Morris)

    In 1900, David Hilbert asked whether each locally euclidean Topological Group admits a Lie group structure. This book should give the reader an overview of topological group theory as it developed over the last 115 years, as well as current research.

  • Euclid and His Twentieth Century Rivals (Nathaniel Miller)

    Twentieth-century developments in logic and mathematics have led many people to view Euclid's proofs as inherently informal, especially due to the use of diagrams in proofs. It introduces a diagrammatic computer proof system, based on this formal system.
