MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS OF INFORMATION FLOWS IN DESIGN AND EDUCATION
Education seems to be closely parallel to design. In design activities, we try to seek a solution of design by which we can produce entities according to specifications. Similarly in educational activities, we try to plan an educational practice which enables students to behave according to educational objectives. We gave the mathematical formulation of education; furthermore we found that design and education have the structure in common in our formulation. By focusing on normative methods to education in our formulation, we try to clarify the role of normative aspects of education, which is concerned to the effectiveness of education. And then, we show that an information flow in education must be regarded as the normative part of it.
