Mathematical thinking goes beyond operating with fractions, calculating roots of polynomials or learning the formulas of derivatives. It is a way of seeing the world, identifying the key elements that operate in each situation and extracting its defining characteristics; observing the numerical and structural relationships that occur between these objects... and using logic to make our deductions.
Throughout the history of civilization, these tools have been developed and perfected, and configure mathematical thinking. In this course we will pause at some of these great achievements of humanity, which are part of our cultural heritage. Through these examples we will induce reasoning and mathematical analysis, which should be fundamental skills for any person.
