The Role of History in a Mathematics Class

Gerald Marshall, Beverly Rich 

November 2000, Volume 93, Issue 8, Page 704

Abstract:
This article argues that history has a vital role to play in the math classroom: it prompts teachers and students to think and talk about mathematics in meaningful ways; it enriches the curriculum; demythologizes mathematics; and promotes communicating, connecting, and valuing mathematics.
