    Matematikens dubbelnatur –undflyende innehåll,självtillräckligt språk2005In: Utbildning och Demokrati, ISSN 1102-6472, E-ISSN 2001-7316, Vol. 14, no 2, p. 27-55Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the role in mathematics of its formal language, here called Mathematish. This language became significant when symbolic mathematics gradually replaced rhetoric mathematics. Mathematics gained in efficiency and calculation became dominant. It is claimed that this happened on the expense of mathematical interpretation, except for those who intuitively understand Mathematish. It is also claimed by linguistic arguments that the structure of a language isnaturally non-articulated for intuitive learners, often teachers, while teaching requires articulation. Languages are often excluding. Therelationship between content and language in mathematics is described from several viewpoints. Three distinct types of mathematical knowl-edge are suggested: 1. How to successfully use Mathematish rules, 2. Mathematish rules (computer programmable grammar), 3. Ideas and meanings of mathematics, e.g. applications and metaphors. Non-formal ways of hinting mathematical ideas and meanings, shedding light on both Mathematish and content, are suggested.
