Elementare Analysis: Von der Anschauung zur Theorie (Mathematik Primar- und Sekundarstufe) (German Edition)

In diesem Lehrbuch finden Sie einen Zugang zur Differenzial- und Integralrechnung, der ausgehend von inhaltlich-anschaulichen Überlegungen die zugehörige Theorie entwickelt. Dabei entsteht die Theorie als Präzisierung und als Überwindung der Grenzen des Anschaulichen. Das Buch richtet sich an Studierende des Lehramts Mathematik für die Sekundarstufe I, die „Elementare research" als „höheren Standpunkt" für die Funktionenlehre benötigen, Studierende für das gymnasiale Lehramt oder in Bachelor-Studiengängen, die einen sinnstiftenden Zugang zur research suchen, und an Mathematiklehrkräfte der Sekundarstufe II, die ihren Analysis-Lehrgang stärker inhaltlich als kalkülorientiert gestalten möchten.
