Mathematics History in Every Course

Letís encourage students to learn the history of the mathematics they are learning while they are learning the mathematics. In this presentation, we will discuss ideas for integrating the history of mathematics in the teaching of our discipline. Those of us at institutions preparing school teachers must show evidence that our students are learning the history of the various branches of mathematics to obtain certification of our programs. Methods for integrating the history will be presented that have been implemented in a wide variety of courses, to include College Algebra, Introductory Statistics, Calculus, and Differential Equations. A learner-centered approach in which students take an active role in investigating and reporting on the historical topics will be the emphasis.
