Connecting Mathematics to the Student’s Own Intelligence
Mathematics is the study of abstract patterns and relationships that underlie all physical reality. Thus studying mathematics is studying the functioning of intelligence itself. Faculty at MUM, in consultation with the founder of MUM, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, have developed Unified Field Charts, relating all parts of mathematics to each other and to their common source in intelligence. They have also developed Main Point Charts, relating mathematical principles learned in class each day to basic principles of the development of consciousness, and to the students’ own inner experience of pure consciousness during the practice of Transcendental Meditation.
This allows the student to see deep connections between the functioning of their own intelligence and mathematical knowledge. Often for the first time, students experience mathematics as a normal, natural part of themselves and of life
