Abstract

Maxwell, who was a mathematician by training, wrote in the preface to his treatise that he did not want to employ any mathematical principles until he went through all of Faraday's experiments in order to understand first the physical phenomena involved. Thus, one other conclusion of this presentation could be that in our teaching we should first provide the context and highlight the physical phenomena before going through all the mathematical details. Perhaps it is time for a change to teach electromagnetics to the students!
