Historical Conceptual Developments and The Teaching of Mathematics: From Philogenesis and Ontogenesis Theory to Classroom Practice
Using a unified method to make elliptic, hyperbolic, and other graphics. From this process, we can see what is the key to make dynamic geometry .It is necessary to use the thinking and methods of
The ABCD of using history of mathematics in the (undergraduate) classroom
TLDR
The past, the present and the future of the subject are intimately inter-related, making mathematics a cumulative science with its past forever assimilated in its present and future.
The Hebrew Mathematical Tradition
In Part One of this essay, we look in detail at the arithmetic and numerology of Abraham Ibn Ezra, and we continue with a broad description of Hebrew contributions in geometry. In Part Two, we shift
The algebraization of mathematics: Using original sources for learning mathematics
The knowledge of the processes in the history of mathematics is very useful for a greater and complete comprehension of the foundations and nature of mathematics. The algebraization of mathematics
A graduate course on the role of history in teaching mathematics
We have developed a graduate course on the role of history in teaching mathematics, emerging from our program of undergraduate teaching with original historical sources and a collaboration with high
La introducción de la historia de las matemáticas en la enseñanza de los números complejos: una investigación experimental en la educación media superior
In this paper the effectiveness of the introduction of imaginary numbers by an historical example is examined by a test (High School, pupils aged 16-18 years). We verified if the presence of
Special Issue on History and Philosophy of Mathematics in Mathematics Education
Although Science & Education has published papers specifically concerning mathematics over the years—some quite significant for education—mathematics has never received the spotlight. Indeed, when
Coxeter on People and Polytopes
H. S. M. Coxeter, known to his friends as Donald, was not only a remarkable mathematician. He also enriched our historical understanding of how classical geometry helped inspire what has sometimes
