HPM is the International Study Group on the
Relations between History and Pedagogy of Mathematics affiliated to the International
Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI).
By
combining the history of mathematics with the teaching and learning
of mathematics, HPM is the
link between the past and the future of mathematics. Therefore, the group aims
at stressing the
conception of mathematics as a living science, a science with a long history, a
vivid present and an as yet unforeseen future.
Among members of the group are researchers in mathematics education,
mathematicians, historians of mathematics, teachers of mathematics and curriculum
developers.
ACTIVITIES
ICME Satellite Meetings of
HPM
Among the activities of the HPM Group, there is the tradition of organizing conferences that are satellite meetings
to the International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME), organized
by ICMI every four years. We list below these meetings:
1984 ICME5 (Adelaide, Australia),
satellite meeting in Adelaide
1988 ICME6 (Budapest, Hungary), satellite
meeting in Florence (Italy)
1992 ICME7 (Quebec, Canada), satellite meeting
in Toronto,(Canada)
1996 ICME8 (Seville, Spain), satellite meeting in Braga (Portugal) conjointly with the 2nd European Summer University in History and
Epistemology in Mathematics Education
2000 ICME9 (TokyoMakuhari, Japan),
satellite meeting in Taipei (Taiwan)
2004 ICME10 (Copenhagen, Denmark),
satellite meeting in Uppsala (Sweden) conjointly with the 4th European Summer University in History and
Epistemology in Mathematics Education
2008 ICME11 (Monterrey, Mexico),
satellite meeting in Mexico City (Mexico)
2012 ICME12 (Seoul, Korea), satellite meeting in
Daejeon (Korea)

European Summer University on the History and Epistemology in
Mathematics Education
Another major international activity of the HPM
Group is the organization of the European Summer University on the History
and Epistemology in Mathematics Education (ESU).
The initiative of organizing such a Summer University belongs to the
French Mathematics Education community of the IREMs, in the early 1980’s. From those
meetings emerged the organization of a SU on a European scale.
We list below these ES:
1993,
1923 July, First ESU, Montpellier, France
1996,
2430 July,
Second ESU, Braga, Portugal (conjointly with the ICME8 Satellite Meeting
of HPM)
1999, 1521 July,
Third ESU, Leuven & LouvainlaNeuve, Belgium
2004, 1217 July,
Fourth ESU, Uppsala, Sweden (conjointly with the ICME10 Satellite
Meeting of HPM)
2007, 1924 July, Fifth ESU, Prague, Czech Republic
2010, 1923 July, Sixth ESU, Vienna, Austria
2014, 1418 July, Seventh ESU, Copenhagen, Denmark
The following volumes
were published after the previous ESU:
 F. Lalande, F. Jaboeuf, and Y. Nouazé (eds),
1995: Actes
de la première Université d’ Été Européenne
sur l’ Histoire et Épistémologie dans l’ Éducation Mathématique, IREM de Montpellier, Université Montpellier II,

On the occasion of the 25th years of the group
John Fauvel and Florence Fasanelli planned to write a history of the HPM.
The final version of the text was prepared by Florence Fasanelli after John
has passed away in 2001, and has been published in the Proceedings of HPM 2004 & ESU 4: ICME 10 Satellite Meeting of the HPM
Group & Fourth European
Summer University
on the History and Epistemology in Mathematics
Education, edited
by Furinghetti, F., Kaisjer, S., & Tzanakis, C. University of Crete, Greece,

It is entitled
An account of what has been done in
the last few years, is included in the Quadrennial
Report 20042008, which is a slightly updated version of the report that
appeared in the ICMI Bulletin No 62, Jume 2008
