Mathematics Teachers(算學訓導) and Professors(算學敎授) in Chosen Dynasty
Hong Sung-Sa ; Hong Young-Hee ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 19, issue 3, 2006, Pages 1~20
The administrative service in Chosun Dynasty relating to mathematics was carried out by the middle class(中人) mathematicians selected by the official selection examination(取才). They belong to HoJo(戶曹) department and their ranks are GyeSa(計士), ByulJe(別提), HunDo(訓導 = mathematics teacher), and GyoSu(敎授 = mathematics professor). We call them SanWon(算員). HunDo and GyoSu played very important role although their ranks are low, for they educate SanWon and manage the official selection examination. Using JuHakSeonSaengAn(籌學先生案, List of mathematics teachers) and JuHakIpGyukAn(籌學入格案, List of successful candidates in the official selection examination for mathematics), we investigate HunDo and GyoSu in Chosun Dynasty.
Chinese Mathematicians and their works
Kim Chang-Il ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 19, issue 3, 2006, Pages 21~42
We investigate chinese mathematicians and their works including their books. We also compare the present transcription of chinese mathematicians and their mathematics books with that in published books on history of chinese mathematics.
Construction Method and Mathematics Educational Aspect of the Wooden Die for Drinking Game(14-face Die)
Lee Kang-Sup ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 19, issue 3, 2006, Pages 43~56
This paper aims to introduce a construction method for the 'Wooden Die for Drinking Game' and to find some geometrical structures and mathematics educational viewpoints. As the results, we get two methods which are eventually same with Figure 5 and Figure 6-3. We proved the ground that classical probability of this Die's each side showing up is one out of fourteen and introduced few other empirical probabilities with Table 1 to Table 3. Also, some Chinese characters were corrected and re-interpreted. In fact, 象人打鼻 changed to 衆人打鼻, and 醜物 is interpreted as 'ugly animal' such as frog, toad, earthworm or pine caterpillar.
On the number three and the structure of trisection in the Samsung myth
Yang Young-Oh ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 19, issue 3, 2006, Pages 57~70
In this paper, we study the meaning and symbols of the number three and the structure of dividing into three parts in the religions, views of the world and the nature. Also we investigate the meaning of the number three, and the structure of dividing into three in the Samsung myth. According to legend, the 'Three Names' (Samsung-Yang, Ko and Pu) which are three demi-gods emerged from Samsung-hyeol(called Moheung-hyeol), and became the progenitors of the Jeju people who founded the Kingdom of Tamna.
Evolution of Korean Modern Mathematics in late 19th and early 20th century

Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 19, issue 3, 2006, Pages 71~84
The purpose of the study was to investigate the evolution of Korean modern mathematics in late 19th and early 20th century. This article reveals the efforts of incipient Korean mathematicians who had adopted modern mathematics from western countries and the difficulties and struggles they had to go through at that time. At the end of the article, we discussed our current status in international mathematical society.
Dickson polynomials on Galois rings and Dickson Schemes
Kim Kyung-Hee ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 19, issue 3, 2006, Pages 85~94
We review Galois rings and permutation polynomials over Galois rings with emphasis on cryptological properties of Dickson polynomials and conclude that it is not plausible to obtain the Dickson scheme which has a Galois ring as a plaintext space.
Investigation of Archimedes'
On the Sphere and Cylinder
Cho Cheong-Soo ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 19, issue 3, 2006, Pages 95~112
The purpose of this paper is to investigate a classic mathematician and inventor Archimedes' work
On the Sphere and Cylinder
. The propositions of this book which deals with three dimensional geometry are reviewed. Through the review this study tries to find out how Archimedes mastered spherical figures and how classical mathematics ideas are related to the modern concept of integration. The results of this study seems to help people understand deeply modern mathematics and to be good resources to develop new mathematical ideas.
On Teaching of Computer-Software Field Using Smoothing Methodology
Lee Seung-Woo ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 19, issue 3, 2006, Pages 113~122
We investigate the mathematical background, statistical methodology, and the teaching of computer-software field using smoothing methodology in this paper. Also we investigate conception and methodology of histogram, kernel density estimator, adaptive kernel estimator, bandwidth selection based on mathematics and statistics.
Freedom Achieved in Mathematics Education
Cha Joo-Yeon ; Whang Woo-Hyung ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 19, issue 3, 2006, Pages 123~146
The topic in this thesis stems from the current education situation that represses learners' freedom by excessive instruction and compulsory institution, in spite of the education helping learners free from inner prejudice as one of its chief aims. In this thesis, to discuss with an educational aspect, I call the learners' freedom in the learning process 'freedom-in-process' and the learners' freedom as the result of learning 'freedom-as-result'. Through this discussion, the conclusions are as follows; First, learners who enjoy freedom-in-process get to obtain freedom-as-result in mathematics education. Second, freedom-in-process and freedom-as-result appear repeatedly in the process of looking for and gaining structures. Freedom-in-process and freedom-as-result are both faces of coin, like seed and fruit which are related mutually and fertilized each other. For this purpose, Mathematics teacher must have awareness of the value of freedom, cherish the freedom, and enjoy it with his students.
Consideration of Mathematics Education's Problem in Vocational High School - The Case of Students in Commercial High School -
Cho Bong-Sik ; Lee Jung-Ha ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 19, issue 3, 2006, Pages 147~156
The purposes of this study are that understand vocational high school student's scholastic ability, dream and conception about mathematics exactly and that we find a educational mathematics program suitable to vocational high school student. Through this improvement of the curriculum in vocational high school, we will find the way that increase efficiency.
