  • Both history of mathematics and education of mathematics is old subject. The question arises wether can these two important subjects can help each other or not. Unfortunately this idea made mathematics society into two groups; one has idea that history of mathematics can help education of mathematics and other group has idea that not only history of mathematics can not help education of mathematics but also it makes some confusion. In this article the author is going to do some comparison and take some conclusion that history of mathematics can make education of mathematics so active and interesting.

  • In this paper, we explore about Korean early childhood mathematics education history. Actually, mathematics education history is mathematics education curriculum's history. Korean education curriculum has been influenced by the US and European prominent educators: Montessori, Piaget, Bruno, and Dewey, etc. We investigate how those philosophy and thoughts were adopted in Korean early childhood mathematics education curriculums from 1st to 2015 amended curriculum. Also, we can see that NCTM's content standards and Korean Nuri curriculum are the same in the basic concepts: number and operations, space and shapes, measurement, understanding of patterns and data collection.

  • 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.

  • Although many people have recognized the importance of history of mathematics in mathematics education, there are few studies that history and mathematics educations are connected. In this paper, we present and discuss the ways of introducing the instruction with mathematics machines. This instruction use the history of mathematics as part of a class not as a tool to stimulate students' interest but as a goal that it can be targeted mathematical itself. To do this, we first analyze the characteristics of applying history of mathematics in mathematical education, second, describe the meaning and the educational value of mathematical machines, and finally explained the way of applying history of mathematics with mathematics machines. The Instruction of history of mathematics with mathematics machines has advantages that practice (manipulation and experiment) and theory (elaboration of definition, production of conjectures and constructions of proofs) are interlaced within a historic-cultural perspective.

  • In this study, we investigated the application of oriental history of mathematics in school mathematics teaching. We set up three study problems to achieve this purpose. First, we analyze the middle and high school mathematics textbooks and auxiliary books. Second, we survey the mathematics teacher's knowledge and degree of application on history of mathematics. Third, we develop the teaching and learning materials on oriental history of mathematics. We performed three study-methods to settle above study problem. First, we analyzed 24 textbooks and auxiliary books for study problem 1. There were 6 middle school mathematics textbooks and 6 auxiliary books and also 6 high school mathematics textbooks and 6 auxiliary books. We categorized the contents into "anecdote", "systematization", "application of problem", "expansibility of thought", and "comparative of the contents". Second, we surveyed the 78 mathematics teachers's knowledge and degree of application using questionnaire about knowledge and application on history of mathematics. The questionnaire was made up of four types of question; the effect of material about history of mathematics, the understanding of western history of mathematics, the understanding of oriental history of mathematics; the direction of development of teaching material. Third, we exemplified the teaching and learning materials about three categories: "anecdote", "comparative of the contents".

  • There has been an ongoing symbiotic relationship between the history of the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction(ICMI) and the broader history of mathematics education since 1908. Similarly, the International Congress on Mathematical Education(ICME) has played an important role in the direction of Mathematics education since its first congress in 1969. ICME-12 is due to be held in Seoul, Korea from July $8^{th}$ to $15^{th}$ 2012. To date, there has been no research paper concerning the history of the ICMI published in any Korean journal. In readiness for the upcoming ICME-12, this paper aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the history of the IMCI from the perspective of Mathematics education.

  • There are currently various types of alternative schools which has diverse goals and traits in Korea. Education suited to educational principles can't be carried out, as long as mathematics education in alternative schools is same as one in the regular schools. In this thesis the problems of mathematics education which is conducted in alternative schools for maladjusted students will be examined in three aspects of teaching contents, teaching methods, and teaching environments. And we will study about mathematics education that use mathematical history as one way of mathematics education for the alternative school students.
