This article states that structurally the concept of mathematical culture has four main components: a mathematical world view, mathematical thinking, methods of mathematics and language of mathematics. Two of them are analyzed in details – methods of mathematics and mathematical language. It is noted that for the mathematicians inductive logic, common tools and techniques that produce the following scientific stochastic concepts are essential: analysis, synthesis, abstraction and determination. The authors emphasized that the mathematical theory of probability is the language for discussion of empirical problems in a number of different ways.
Keywords: mathematical culture, stochastic culture, methods of mathematics, language of mathematics, analysis, determination, induction, mathematical abstraction, analogy in mathematics, deduction in mathematics.
