Convergence: Where Mathematics, History, and Teaching Interact, is the MAA's free online journal about the history of mathematics and its use in teaching. Aimed at teachers of mathematics at both the secondary and collegiate levels, Convergence includes topics from grades 8-16 mathematics, with special emphasis on topics from grades 8-14: algebra, combinatorics, synthetic and analytic geometry, trigonometry, probability and statistics, elementary functions, calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra.
Convergence resources for using the history of mathematics in the teaching of mathematics range from informative articles about the history of mathematics to teaching tools such as Mathematical Treasures, a collection of digital images of mathematical objects and texts from many museums and libraries.
Besides historical images, articles about the history of mathematical topics from grades 8-16, translations of original sources, and classroom activities, projects, and modules, Convergence offers the following resources:
Convergence was founded in 2004 by Victor J. Katz, of the University of the District of Columbia, and Frank J. Swetz, of the Pennsylvania State University, with funding from the National Science Foundation, and was edited by Katz and Swetz for over five years. On July 1, 2009, Janet Beery, University of Redlands, and Kathy Clark, Florida State University, took over editorial duties, with Katz and Swetz as advisors. Janet Beery is currently serving a 2014-2019 term as Editor.
