  • This study investigated the representation and algorithms of western mathematics reflected on the algebra domains of Chosun-Sanhak in the 18th century. I also analyzed the co-occurrences and replacement phenomenon between western algorithms and traditional algorithms. For this purpose, I analyzed nine Chosun mathematics books in the 18th century, including Gusuryak and Gosasibijip. The results of this study are as follows. First, I identified the process of changing to a calculation by writing of western mathematics, from traditional four arithmetical operations using Sandae and the formalized explanation for the proportional concept and proportional expression. Second, I observed the gradual formalization of mathematical representation of the solution for a simultaneous linear equation. Lastly, I identified the change of the solution for square root from traditional Gaebangsul and Jeungseunggaebangbeop to a calculation by the writing of western mathematics.

  • The purpose of this study is to examine the features of the curriculum of Chosun-Sanhak(朝鮮算學), the mathematics of Chosun Dynasty in the 17th to 18th century. The results of this study are as follows. First, the goal of education, teaching-learning method and assessment of Chosun-Sanhak in the 17th to 18th century had not changed since the 15th century. Second, the changes in the field of the organization of mathematical contents were observed. Chosun-Sanhak in that time was higher in the hierarchy than in the 15th to 16th century. The share of the equation and geometry had increased and various topics of mathematics had been studied as well. Third, in the field of the characteristics of mathematical contents, the influx of European mathematics and the uniqueness of Chosun-Sanhak had been observed. In conclusion, The 17th to 18th century was the time when Chosun-Sanhak had pursued the identity escaping from the effects of Chinese-Sanhak.
