HPM 2020 is the tenth quadrennial meeting of the International Study Group on the Relations Between the History and Pedagogy of Mathematics - the HPM Group. The HPM Group is an affiliated study group of the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI). By combining the history of mathematics with the teaching and learning of mathematics, HPM connects the past and the future of mathematics.
Therefore, the group aims to stress the conception of mathematics as a living science, a science with a long history, a vivid present, and an as yet unforeseen future.

Main themes
The plenary lectures are structured around the following topics:
1.
Theoretical and/or conceptual frameworks for integrating history in mathematics education.
2. History and epistemology in students' and teachers' mathematics education: Classroom experiments and teaching materials.
3. Original sources in the classroom and their educational effects.
4. Mathematics and its relation to science, technology, and the arts: Historical issues and interdisciplinary teaching and learning.
5. Cultures and mathematics fruitfully interwoven.
6. Topics in the history of mathematics education.

Two of ICME 14 TSGs are directly related to the HPM perspective, constituting an important activity of the HPM Group, namely:

TSG 27: The role of the history of mathematics  in mathematics education
chair: Y. Weiss (Germany),
  yweiss@uni-mainz.de  
co-chair:
 D. van den Bogaart (The Netherlands),   d.a.van.den.bogaart@hva.nl

TSG 27 aims to provide a forum for participants to share their research interests and results, as well as their teaching ideas and classroom experience in connection with the integration of the history of mathematics in mathematics education. Special care is taken to present and promote ideas and research results of an as broad as possible international interest, while still focusing due attention to the national aspects of research and teaching experience in this area. Every effort will be made to allow researchers to present their work, get fruitful feedback from the discussion, and stimulate the interest of newcomers by giving them the opportunity to get a broad overview on the state-of-the-art in this area.
This TSG refers to all levels of education – from primary school to tertiary education, including in-service teachers’ training – preferably on work and conclusions based on actual classroom experiments and/or produced teaching and learning materials.

The program of TSG 27 will be structured around the following main themes:
1. Theoretical and/or conceptual frameworks – in particular from general mathematics education research – for integrating history in mathematics education; 2. History and epistemology implemented in mathematics education: Classroom experiments and teaching materials, considered from various perspectives; e.g., cognitive, didactical, pedagogical, affective, etc.;
3. Surveys on the history of mathematics as it appears in curriculum and/or textbooks;
4. Original sources in the classroom, and their educational effects;
5. The role of history of mathematics in relation to the use of digital technologies in the teaching and learning of mathematics;
6. History and epistemology as a tool for an interdisciplinary approach in the teaching and learning of mathematics and the sciences by unfolding their productive interrelations; and
7. Cultures and mathematics fruitfully interwoven.


TSG 55: The history of the teaching and learning of Mathematics  
chair: W. Rodrigues Valente (Brazil), wagner.valente@unifesp.br

co-chair:
A. Karp (USA), apk16@columbia.edu

TSG 55 is designed to bring together scholars interested in research on the history of mathematics education. The aim of the TSG is to provide a forum for the discussion of findings and unsolved problems in the history of mathematics education as well as of issues in methodology of research in this field. During the last years research in the history of mathematics education has been actively developed – important books and articles, specialized conferences, specialized journals, and special issues of some major serials have been devoted to the relevant topics. Still, it is very clear that many themes are not explored sufficiently and sometimes almost nothing is known about some periods and regions. Additionally, the history of mathematics education is often explored from a local (or national) point of view only. Often connections with similar processes happening elsewhere need to be revealed and understood. This TSG is supposed to help researchers in identifying new topics and new techniques for studies and in establishing fruitful collaboration in their work.

Meetings of the TSG will offer presentations on a variety of topics including the following (but not limited to them):

• History of reforms in mathematics education
• History of teaching different mathematical subjects (Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Probability, etc.)
• History of tools in mathematics education (including textbooks, manipulatives, calculators, etc.)
• Mathematics teachers: history of professionalization
• Local, national, and international dimensions in the history of mathematics education
• History of mathematics education journals and conferences
• Heroes and actors in mathematics education: lives and contributions
• Research methodology in the history of mathematics education.

People, Places, Practices: Joint BSHM-CSHPM/SCHPM Conference 2020

http://www.mcs.st-andrews.ac.uk/bshm-cshpm/index.shtml

People, Places, Practices, is the 5-yearly joint conference of the British Society for the History of Mathematics and Canadian Society for History and Philosophy of Mathematics/La Société Canadienne d'Histoire et de Philosophie des Mathématiques, in collaboration with HOM-SIGMAA, the History of Mathematics Special Interest Group of the MAA.

People, Places, Practices, will showcase a broad range of approaches to the history of mathematics:
• People allows discussion of the cultural roles of mathematical biography, the historiographic and technical challenges of writing mathematical biography, as well as more straightforward biographical approaches
• Places provides for the influence of location, geographical, spatial, conceptual or cultural, on mathematics and mathematicians
• Practices encompasses the ways in which mathematicians and mathematical practitioners work or have worked, along with the materials, devices, and ideas used

 

The conference will have a couple of days dedicated also to the pedagogical remit of the history of mathematics and we therefore invite submissions for short presentations (20 mins presentation + 10 mins questions), or for symposia or workshops (60 mins or 90 mins), on topics related to the main themes of the conference. Topics from any historical period or geographical focus are welcome. Other session formats are encouraged; if you would like to propose one, please contact Isobel Falconer ijf3@st-andrews.ac.uk.

To submit abstracts of up to 500 words (individual papers), or 1000 words (symposia or workshops) by 30 November, please use easychair online service, but state clearly at the top of your proposal whether you wish to present on the education days. This can be done at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bshmcshpm2020. Individual paper abstracts should include a short biography of the speaker. Symposia/workshop abstracts should give brief details of the chair and presenters, their topics and what the symposium/workshop as a whole will contribute to the conference.

We expect to have reached decisions on papers by 15 January 2020. Early-bird conference registration will close on 31 March 2020.

For further details of the conference and venue, see

Two of ICME 13 TSGs are directly related to the HPM perspective, constituting an important activity of the HPM Group, namely:

TSG 24: History of the teaching and learning of Mathematics  
co-chairs:
F. Furinghetti (Italy), furinghetti@dima.unige.it
A. Karp (USA), apk16@columbia.edu
 

TSG 25: The role of History of Mathematics  in Mathematics Education
co-chairs: C. Tzanakis (Greece), tzanakis@edc.uoc.gr
X.Wang (China), xqwang@math.ecnu.edu.cn

TSG 25 aims to provide a forum for participants to share their research interests and results, as well as their teaching ideas and classroom experience in connection with the integration of the History of Mathematics (HM) in Mathematics Education (ME).
The discussion within this TSG refers to all levels of education – from primary school, to tertiary education, including in-service teachers’ training.

The programme of TSG 25 will be structured around the following main themes:
1. Theoretical and/or conceptual frameworks for integrating history in mathematics education;
2. History and epistemology implemented in mathematics education: Classroom experiments and teaching materials, considered from either the cognitive or/and affective points of view;
3.
Surveys on the history of mathematics as it appears in curriculum and/or textbooks (including the history of mathematics in old mathematics textbooks);
4. Original sources in the classroom, and their educational effects;
5. History and epistemology as a tool for an interdisciplinary approach in the teaching and learning of mathematics and the sciences by unfolding their fruitful interrelations;
6. Cultures and mathematics fruitfully interwoven.

There will be the following types of contributions:
- Invited contributions,
- Submitted contributions
that will lead either to a paper, or a poster presentation.

Each participant can submit a proposal either for a paper or a poster presentation, but not for both.

The original announcement of TSG 25 has been detailed, especially on the procedure of submitting  proposals and time schedule. Please click here.

The Organizing Team (OT) of TSG 25 has performed a survey on the developments in the HPM domain since 2000, the year of publication of the comprehensive History in Mathematics Education: The ICMI Study, edited by J. Fauvel & J. van Maanen (Kluwer 2000). Since its publication, however, the HPM domain has expanded considerably and intensive research activity has been realized worldwide that led to a great deal of thoughtful publications both on theoretical issues and empirical investigations. Nevertheless, a comprehensive survey is still lacking. Therefore, the survey carried out by the OT of TSG 25 aims to contribute to filling the gap, at the same time providing a useful tool to anyone with interest in this domain and wants to become informed on the main issues and to have a concise guide of the work done in this area.

With focus on the period after the publication of the above ICMI Study Volume, this survey attempts to provide concise annotated reference to existing work in this area, related to the TSG 25 main themes. However, it should be considered only as a working document to be kept updated both by the OT of TSG 25 and/or other members of the community, who will point out further references that are missing. Any comments, suggestions, amendments and further bibliographical references are most desirable and welcome!
The survey is available at HPMinME-TopicalStudy-29-8-2017.pdf
