Analysing the Use of History of Mathematics through MKT
Jankvist, Uffe Thomas; Mosvold, Reidar; Fauskanger, Janne; Jakobsen, Arne
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v46 n4 p495-507 2015
In this article, we analyse three "classical" cases of using history of mathematics in teacher training and reinterpret them using the framework of mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT). We continue with a discussion of the potential benefits of applying MKT as a framework for discussion in research related to the use of history in mathematics education. MKT serves as an example of a framework from general mathematics education research which has something to offer in this respect. We argue that the MKT framework provides a powerful language to communicate results from research on the uses of history of mathematics to researchers in other areas of mathematics education research.
