Abstract

Choi Yoon Sik is a person who can not be omitted when discussing the history of mathematics in Korea. He is a mathematician who led Korean mathematics community after liberation from Japan. However, he took interests in mathematics education in middle and high school also. Choi Yoon Sik should be remembered as a leading person not only in the history of mathematics but also in the history of mathematics education in Korea. Choi Yoon Sik thought that histo-genetic principle, intuitive principle, and practical principle are important in mathematics education by help of Okura Kinnosuke's view, with hope to reform the mathematics education in Korea. He also argued that mathematics has educational values.
