ABSTRACT
We discuss some features of school mathematics as important factors of math phobia among the public. We try to highlight the difference between the two images of math, as viewed by math phobics and math enthusiasts like us. We give proposals to deal with the problem in mathematics education, and a more detailed description of a method called Comparative geometry on the plane and on the sphere. We add some concrete experiences and experiments in and out of the classroom. The target audience of the present paper is not confined to the experts of mathematics teaching, but to the educational community as a whole.
