Konferenz: History and Pedagogy of Mathematics - The HPM Satellite Meeting of ICME-12 (HPM 2012). Daejeon, Südkorea. Internet: History and Pedagogy of Mathematics - The HPM Satellite Meeting of ICME-12

Termin: 16. - 20. Juli 2012


The HPM 2012 is a satellite meeting of ICME-12 and is the eighth quadrennial meeting of the HPM Group, which is the International Study Group on the Relations between the History and Pedagogy of Mathematics. Especially, the HPM 2012 is the conference celebrating the 40th anniversary of the HPM Group, and focuses the insights into Eastern Asia Mathematics History. Members of the HPM Group consists of mathematicians, researchers in Mathematics education, historians of mathematics, teachers of mathematics, and curriculum developers. The HPM 2012 is welcoming everyone who is interested in the history of mathematics and mathematics education.


The HPM 2012 is a place where mathematicians, educators, historians, researchers and students can make presentations and participate in discussions. The programme and activities are structured around the following main seven themes:

  • Theoretical and/or conceptual frameworks for integrating history in mathematics education
  • History and epistemology implemented in mathematics education: classroom experiments & teaching materials
  • Original sources in the classroom, and their educational effects
  • Mathematics and its relation to science, technology and the arts: historical issues and educational implications
  • Cultures and mathematics
  • Topics in the history of mathematics education
  • Mathematics from Eastern Asia
