In contemporary education, mathematics education is the practice of teaching and learning mathematics, along with the associated scholarly research. Elementary mathematics was part of the education system in most ancient civilisations, including Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, Vedic society and ancient Egypt. Illustration at the beginning of a 14th-century translation of Euclid’s Elements. In the Renaissance, the academic status of mathematics declined, because it was strongly associated with trade and commerce, and considered somewhat un-Christian. The first mathematics textbooks to be written in English and French were published by Robert Recorde, beginning with The Grounde of Artes in 1540.

However, there are many different writings on mathematics and mathematics methodology that date back to 1800 BCE. These were mostly located in Mesopotamia where the Sumerians were practicing multiplication and division. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the Industrial Revolution led to an enormous increase in urban populations. Basic numeracy skills, such as the ability to tell the time, count money and carry out simple arithmetic, became essential in this new urban lifestyle. By the twentieth century, mathematics was part of the core curriculum in all developed countries. During the twentieth century, mathematics education was established as an independent field of research.

The professional periodical literature on mathematics education in the U. 4000 articles after 1920, so in 1941 William L. Schaaf published a classified index, sorting them into their various subjects. This section does not cite any sources. At different times and in different cultures and countries, mathematics education has attempted to achieve a variety of different objectives. The teaching of heuristics and other problem-solving strategies to solve non-routine problems.

The method or methods used in any particular context are largely determined by the objectives that the relevant educational system is trying to achieve. Games can motivate students to improve skills that are usually learned by rote. In “Number Bingo,” players roll 3 dice, then perform basic mathematical operations on those numbers to get a new number, which they cover on the board trying to cover 4 squares in a row. This game was played at a “Discovery Day” organized by Big Brother Mouse in Laos. Computer-based math an approach based around use of mathematical software as the primary tool of computation. Conventional approach: the gradual and systematic guiding through the hierarchy of mathematical notions, ideas and techniques. Starts with arithmetic and is followed by Euclidean geometry and elementary algebra taught concurrently.
