  • This study focused on the selection and application of mathematical problems to provide mathematically challenging tasks for the gifted elementary students. For the selection, a mathematical problem from <算術管見> of Joseon dynasty, '圓容三方互求', was selected, considering the participants' experiences of problem solving and the variety of approaches to the problem. For the application, teaching strategies such as individual problem solving and sharing of the solving methods were used. The problem was provided for 13 mathematically gifted elementary students. They not only solved it individually but also shared their approaches by presentations. Their solving and sharing processes were observed and their results were analyzed. Based on this, some didactical considerations were suggested.

  • Based on the importance and the necessity of the study on history of mathematics and mathemtics education using history of mathematics for finding the cultural identity and values of our traditional mathematics, we refer to two types of teaching and learning methods utilizing 'WonYongSamBangHoGu', the second theme of 'SanSulGwanGyeon' written by Lee Sang Hyuk. First, we present various cases of 'WonYongSamBangHoGu' constructed utilizing kind of mathematics learning software, GeoGebra by high school freshmen belonging to the Education Centers for the Gifted in Seoul Science Park. Second, We modernly reinterpret the questions contained in 'WonYongSamBangHoGu' and show several developed items using it.
