Scope and focus of the Working Group

History of mathematics in mathematics education continues to receive much attention. However, empirical research and coherent theoretical/conceptual frameworks within this area have emerged relatively recently.

The purpose of this CERME TWG is to provide a forum to approach mathematics education in connection with history and epistemology dedicated primarily to theory and research on all aspects of the role, effect, and efficacy of history and epistemology as elements in mathematics education.

 

Call for papers and poster proposals

TWG12 welcomes both empirical and theoretical research papers, and poster proposals related to one or more of the following issues – although any paper or poster of relevance to the overall focus of the group will be taken into consideration:

1. Design and/or assessment of teaching/learning materials using the history of mathematics, preferably with conclusions based on empirical data; all levels can be considered, from early-age mathematics to tertiary education and teacher training.

2. Surveys on the existing uses of history or epistemology in curricula, textbooks, and/or classrooms in primary, secondary, and tertiary levels;

3. History of mathematics education;

4. Relationships between, on the one hand frameworks for and empirical studies on history in mathematics education and, on the other hand, theories, frameworks and studies in other parts of mathematics education research.

 

Papers and poster proposals should use the CERME template, and conform to the guidelines for authors as outlined on the CERME 10 website. CERME10 uses a submission website. An author submits a paper on the website (uploading it as a .doc or .docx file, and providing the required information, in particular the TWG number).

 

Reviews and decisions

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two persons from among those who submit papers to this TWG. Please expect to be asked to review up to two papers yourself. The group leaders will decide about the acceptance of posters.
