About this series
The International Studies in the History of Mathematics and its Teaching Series creates a platform for international collaboration in the exploration of the social history of mathematics education and its connections with the development of mathematics. The series offers broad perspectives on mathematics research and education, including contributions relating to the history of mathematics and mathematics education at all levels of study, school education, college education, mathematics teacher education, the development of research mathematics, the role of mathematicians in mathematics education, mathematics teachers' associations and periodicals.The series seeks to inform mathematics educators, mathematicians, and historians about the political, social, and cultural constraints and achievements that influenced the development of mathematics and mathematics education. In so doing, it aims to overcome disconnected national cultural and social histories and establish common cross-cultural themes within the development of mathematics and mathematics instruction. However, at the core of these various perspectives, the question of how to best improve mathematics teaching and learning always remains the focal issue informing the series.
