The process of teaching mathematics, digitalization of education, emotions, interest, pleasure, surprise, conjecture, fun, humor, signs of scientific beauty


The article deals with the problem of activating positive emotions among students in the process of teaching mathematics in the context of digitalization of education. The aesthetic appeal of mathematics, its learning process, and ICT tools are seen as contributing factors. The role of ICT tools in the manifestation of emotions and emotional experiences of satisfaction in the context of the formation of different levels of cognition is considered. The connection of IR technologies with emotional sensations of pleasure is shown: IR technologies enhance these feelings and tend to lead society to a hedonistic lifestyle. IR technologies also activate intellectual emotions. Like curiosity and surprise, the emotions of guessing are very important for improving the effectiveness of the process of learning mathematics. And IR technologies have a significant impact on this. In particular, the paper examines the importance of the emotional form of guesswork in teaching fascinating, historical and problem solving in general. Considered at first glance away from mathematics and the process of learning the emotions of fun. Anecdotes, riddles, parables of the famous Armenian mathematician of the 7th century Anania Shirakatsi are considered as materials leading to this emotional experience.
