수학적 창의성에 대한 관점 연구

In this paper, we review definition and concept of mathematical creativity. A couple of criteria have established for perspectives in mathematical creativity, The first is specific domain(mathematics) vs general domain(creativity) and the second is process(thinking process) vs outcome(divergent production). By these criteria, four perspectives have constructed : mathematics-thinking process approach(McTd), mathematics-divergent production approach(MctD), creativity-thinking process approach(mCTd), creativity-divergent production approach(mCtD). When mathematical creativity is researched by the specific reason and particular focus, an appropriate approach can be chosen in four perspectives.
