The Present Teaching of Mathematics in Germany: Chapter XIII. Mathematics in the Text-Books on Physics


by David Eugene Smith & A. T. French - 1912

This article contains a brief digest of a much more extended discussion under the same titlei in one of the reports of the International Mathematics Commission. Although Dr. Timerding has written in the interests of mathematical instruction, it has not been his intention to emphasize mathematics unduly or to prescribe rules for the teaching of physics. He does, however, aim to show that mathematical problems arise in the study of physics and that the solution of these problems is necessary for an understanding of the physics. Many of the difficulties of physics will be made easy through a reform in the teaching of mathematics.
