The main challenge to the teachers in the field of mathematics in
higher education is the fact that they are often confronted with the generally
negative attitude of the students towards mathematics. This is partially due to
their inadequate experience in the previous periods of learning mathematics that
results in a certain mixture of essential mathematical illiteracy and personal
animosity towards the subject. It is the main reason why mostly of the
mathematics teachers in higher education are not able to achieve the needed
efficacy in teaching mathematics. In this paper part we will envisage part of the
problems we had to deal with in our efforts in making mathematics in higher
education more approachable and more acceptable to our students. The main
goal is to present suggestions for overcoming the existing problems and
drawbacks that we are facing as mathematics teachers, mainly in faculties in
technical sciences.
