Analogy and some of its use in the mathematics school course
The analogy depicts similarities between objects, events, and concepts. Identifying an analogy helps students develop and reinforce skills in the connections between objects and events, also accessing relationships and identifying similar ones. In the teaching process, the method of analogy should be formulated as clearly as possible so that it is easy for students to understand and the need for the method is clearly seen. It is especially important to train teachers to use the analogy method. Teachers and students need to explain specifically which tasks they need to solve by using the analogy method in order to access its essence and achieve the desired result. Various tasks by using analogy are discussed and appropriate methodological conclusions are made.
