In this theoretical essay the psychological aspects of genetic approach to teaching mathematics (mainly at universities) are discussed. Analysis of the history and modern state of genetic teaching shows that its psychological aspects may be explained using both Vygotskian and Piagetian frameworks. Experience of practice of mathematical education has been important for the development of genetic approach as well. Furthermore, genetic teaching should be enhanced by stylistic and emotional elements developing students' motivation and interest. [For complete proceedings, see ED489597.]
