Scientific Articles

Over the last decade and a half in Russian mathematics education is characterized by emerging trend to strengthen the pragmatic approach to teaching technology. The consequence of this there is very low development of the vast majority of students cognitive needs. Traditionally used in American didactics (USA) and deposited on Russian soil historically alien to the national pedagogy pragmatic approach to training has led to the fact that as a result of the educational process in secondary and higher education is systematically suppressed activation of the cognitive needs of students, inhibited the development their thinking skills, logical culture of students, resulting in reduced publication of scientific articles and monographs, the publication – it is all the result of the scientists of the future under question. Developmental training as one of the principles of domestic didactics was a dead-end direction in today's pedagogy. Reported adverse events are not specific to mathematics education and teaching other fundamental disciplines, but also for the educational process in general. At this repeatedly drawn attention in the press and public appearances outstanding representatives of national science and culture. Thus, in the open letter to Russian President BN Yeltsin wrote about it right academician Sergei Mikhailovich Nikol'skii, a mathematician of world renown. Academician SM Nicholas, whose authority in the mathematical world is undeniable, is known Mathematics and general education community as the author of brilliant books on mathematics (including for schools).

Much of his work is the publication of monographs and the publication of scientific articles. They are used worldwide as a basic textbooks and teaching aids in a variety of mathematical disciplines and, above all, the mathematical analysis. Implanted in the didactics of American pragmatism, which reduces the study of mathematics to endless repetition of similar problems and the development of automaticity in the use of algorithms for solving standard problems, leads to the oppression of mental abilities of students. It does not create optimal conditions for their creative development as human beings, drowns the individual development of intelligence. For example, when solving a quadratic equation focuses on only the algorithm for finding the roots of his well-known formula. At the same time completely ignored its special cases: incomplete or reduced quadratic equation, with even middle coefficient, or use the Vieta theorem. Meanwhile, the mathematical education in Russia for Still, at least the last three centuries are among the leading in the world. While on the International Mathematical Olympiad, we sometimes save, and the first place, but not in the team, but only in the individual standings. We must come to terms with the fact that the two world powers of mathematical XX century – the Soviet Union and France – Russia has lost over the past decade its leadership position in this major and critical area of world culture. Thus we can conclude that non-professional training of young scientists to publish articles with a view to the development of mathematics in Russia.
