Welcome to Leo's History of Mathematics. This website aims to provide a range of resources for teachers and pupils for investigating the history and culture of mathematics in an educational context. The website benefits from the experience of many teachers, teacher educators, and historians of mathematics worldwide whose work has enabled us to provide both resources for classroom use and details of research that show the ways in which the history of mathematics relates to the teaching of mathematics and to the school curriculum.
The British Society for Research in the Learning of Mathematics provides a forum for the Working Group of teachers, teacher trainers, and researchers who contribute to this website by providing ideas and have trialed some of these resources in their classrooms or in research projects.
A wide selection of History of Maths resources for use both in the classroom and outside it.
Research papers and work relating to the History of Maths and it's use in education.
