Conceptual Mathematics

Posina Venkata Rayudu, in the spirit of deinstitutionalizing education and of nurturing the universal yearning for understanding, is discussing Conceptual Mathematics (Category Theory).  The study of conceptual mathematics can be motivated by noting the conceptual nature of comprehension and by recognizing the learnable nature of mathematics.  Conceptual Mathematics textbook of Lawvere and Schanuel is closely followed.  No formal training in mathematics or concepts (beyond that of high school) is required to participate in the discussions.  Nothin fancy in here; just trying to understand:

1 apple + 1 apple = 10 apples

  1. Fantastic! I’ve never even heard of Conceptual Mathematics or Category Theory, but I’m glad to make the acquaintance of a fellow web-based teacher dedicated to free online learning!

  2. Hello! I have nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. Mathematics is an exciting language. I look forward to reading your posts! I would be honoured if you accept.

  3. Very nice and interesting blog! Thanks for following “Known is a drop, Unknown is an Ocean”. :)

  4. Thank you for showing interest in my blog. Your blog is very advanced, whereas mine is rudimentary.

  5. I think this is math that I would have excelled in!

  6. Thank you for following my blog. I always struggled with math but look forward to learning from your blog. Be Blessed!

  7. Thanks for following my blog! It’s funny, I have heard about and studied category theory (albeit only to a small extent so far), but never heard anyone mention “conceptual mathematics” – pretty interesting! How would you define the difference between the two, if there even is a difference?

  8. What a surprise greeted me when I opened your blog! You found my blog that actually has nothing to do with mathematics, but with poetry. The funny fact is that I’m just a simple math teacher, not a poet. :) Maybe it’s a matter of my English, but to be honest, I had never heard of the term “conceptual mathematics”. Now you made me curious, than you. Thanks for finding and following me too.
