Summary

There is a long traditon of relating the history of mathematics to its teaching, and increasingly this has extended throughout mathematical education. This volume brings together articles from well known figures in this area, and provides many insights, both in particular cases and in generality, into how the history of mathematics can find application in the teaching of mathematics itself. Educators at all levels, and mathematicians interested in the history of their subject, will find much of interest in this book.
