To achieve this objective a <br>short review of the literature of the main properties associated with elasticity is carried out, without <br>separating them from their historical development, to illustrate a way of presenting the concept <br>in a discrete or continuous way and using geometric arguments or algebraic expressions. Due to <br>the flexibility of the concept, and taking into account the previous knowledge of the student, it is <br>concluded that this approach is a more adequate way to teach the concept.</p>}, number={51}, journal={Semestre Económico}, author={Gómez López, Luis Francisco}, year={2019}, month={abr.}, pages={149–167} }
