Keywords:

Mathematics belongs among the least
popular subjects. The reasons

are quite
known and well described for example in [1]. For that

reason, we
concentrate on methods which could improve its image

among
general audience. Instead of talking about internal problems

of
mathematics, our paper discusses the issue as a managerial

problem.
We use an analogy: What has to be done if Teaching

Mathematics would be an enterprise
with a similarly bad reputation?

Based on the parallel, we propose
long-term solutions and later

exemplify
them. As shown, the most of them requires substantial

changes in
mathematicians’ minds and in their approach to their

teaching
methodologies.
