Recent Developments on Introducing a Historical Dimension in Mathematics Education consists of 24 papers (coming from 13 countries worldwide). The volume aims to constitute an all-embracing outcome of recent activities within the HPM Group (International Study Group on the Relations Between History and Pedagogy of Mathematics). We believe these articles will move the field forward and provide faculty with many new ideas for incorporating the history of mathematics into their teaching at various levels of education.

The book is organized into four parts. The first deals with theoretical ideas for integrating the history of mathematics into mathematics education. The second part contains research studies on the use of the history of mathematics in the teaching of numerous mathematics topics at several levels of education. The third part concentrates on how history can be used with prospective and current teachers of mathematics. We also include a special fourth part containing three purely historical papers based on invited talks at the HPM meeting of 2008. Two of these articles provide an overview of the development of mathematics in the Americas, while the third is a study of the astronomical origins of trigonometry.
