lateral thinking / William Recolons

Left hemisphere, right hemisphere, lateral thinking and mathematics

It seems that there is no creativity and lateral thinking in mathematics

Previously it was common in schools include creative activities or lateral thinking in areas linked to arts education and literature. Little is linked with mathematics, to which notions and procedures already closed was considered that the student had to repeat.

What is creativity?

The creativity, as we have spoken from this blog, is the process present a problem clearly to mind, It is the ability to see new possibilities and do something about it. The school is the essential space, It is ideal for the development of thought and creativity place; by applying systematic action to promote a gradual development of mathematical thinking skills.

Creativity is potential in humans and is capable of being developed; It is not exclusive to geniuses, but it is present in all human beings imagine, transform and create something. Obviously the individual who has inherited creative skills and has enjoyed an environment that stimulated and encouraged creativity, will achieve a higher level of creative performance.

Current research claims that with daily training in this discipline, an incredible brain stimulation is achieved, improving both analytical skills and creative.

left brain and creativity

Traditional schooling tends to partial development of our mental capacity as it favors only the development of the left brain that has to do with our logical behavior, thorough and prudent and little deals with the right hemisphere that has to do with creativity, intuition and audacity.

lateral thinking in schools does a pending issue?

The school is an enabling environment for students to carry out activities to develop their lateral thinking, and mathematics is an important source of problematic situations suitable for this purpose.

It comes to my mind the essential TED talk by Sir Ken Robinson, English specialist based in the US, a little gem of 2006 if you have not seen yet, I recommend with heart:

Mathematics, Creativity and Lateral Thinking

Since mathematics, what can be done it is broad and diverse, from the approach to the implementation problems of playful exercises that encourage students to believe in himself, in their abilities and self-esteem, so can help promote lateral thinking of our students.

As proof that math can be creative, Here we have an equation that ends with the result SEX = FUN.
