Dear Colleagues,

I am presently writing a chapter for a book that will be
distributed at ICME in Japan in August 2000. It deals with the
pedagogy and curriculum of using mathematics history in
pre-university classrooms. It looks at classrooms of primary,
secondary, and students with special needs (all ages). My
colleagues writing with me are from Australia (alternative
education for older students), New Zealand (gifted education),
England (teacher ed and resources, and Argentina (students in
schools with limited resources). I cover everything else and
put the chapter together.

Are any of you aware of teacher education programs, nationally
or internationally, that include the history of mathematics?
Are any of you aware of any school districts that use the
history of mathematics in the curriculum?

Norway has adopted mathematics history into the primary
curriculum and therefore provide their teachers with
appropriate course background. (OH,and I don't think Norway is
doing poorly in international tests, either.)
