Left hemisphere, right hemisphere, lateral thinking and math

There seems to be no creativity or 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 was linked to mathematics, considered to be already closed notions and procedures that the student should repeat.

What is creativity?

Creativity, as we've already talked about from this blog, It's him process of presenting a problem to the mind clearly, is the ability to see new possibilities and do something about it. School is the essential space, is the ideal place for the development of thought and creativity; by applying systematized actions to foster a gradual development of mathematical thinking skills.

Creativity potentially exists in humans and is likely to be developed; it's not proprietary to geniuses, but it's present in any human being who imagines, transform and create something. Obviously the individual who has inherited creative skills and enjoyed an environment that stimulated and encouraged creativity, will achieve a higher level of creative performance.

Current research ensures that with daily training in this discipline, you get an incredible brain stimulus, improving both analytical and creative capacity.

Left brain hemisphere and creativity

Traditional school training tends to partial development of our mental capacity as it favors only the development of the LEFT CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE 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.

Side thinking in schools a pending subject?

The school is an enabling area for students to carry out activities that allow them to develop their lateral thinking, and mathematics is an important source of problem situations appropriate for this purpose.

Sir Ken Robinson's must-have TED talk comes to mind, the US-based English specialist has been in the united states to have a nuclear specialist. USA, a little gem of 2006 that if you haven't seen it yet, I recommend you with the heart:

Math, Side Thinking and Creativity

From mathematics, what can be done is broad and diverse, from the approach of problems to the application of playful exercises that motivate the student to believe in himself, in their abilities and self-esteem, this can help to promote lateral thinking of our students.

As a sign that mathematics can be creative, here's an equation that concludes with the result SEX' FUN.
