First Mathematical Science Journal of Korea in 1905
Lee, Sang-Gu ; Seol, Han-Guk ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 23, issue 2, 2010, Pages 1~21
The first Korean mathematical science journal was published by Yu, Il- Sun in 1905 and the name of this journal is "Mathematical Science magazine". This monthly journal was published for 2 years. But in the existing literature, there is no information about it. We discovered its existence and studied its contents. From the historical materials, pioneering contributions of Yu, Il-Sun to mathematics were provided. In this article, the first issue of this journal was fully analyzed. We could see his affection and enthusiasm for the journal that he started. More mathematical search efforts on finding historical math materials should be continued. More efforts should be made on finding historical math literatures. Related researches will be done. Those works will be worth to be shared in ICME-12 and ICM 2014.

An Essay on Philosophy of Mathematics-Education with an Episode
Oh, Chae-Hwan ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 23, issue 2, 2010, Pages 59~74
Though considering of philosophy of mathematics can be optional to theoretical mathematicians, that of philosophy of mathematics-education is supposed to be indispensible to mathematics-educators. So it is natural for mathematics-educators to ask what kind of philosophy might be more desirable for mathematics-education. In this context, this essay reviews two kinds of major philosophy of mathematics, Platonism and formalism. However it shows that humanism could be more plausible alternative philosophy of mathematicseducation. In the course of entailing such a result it introduces an episode of lecture for Laplace-transformation as a speculative evidence from experience.
A mathematical principle from ancient times China in a Chinese classic on divination
Jeon, Young-Ju ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 23, issue 2, 2010, Pages 75~87
This Chinese classic on divination can be a textbook for the interpretation of the living cosmos. In ancient the Chinese used to interpret correspondence between human and the cosmos with HADO-NAGSEO and the Eight Trigrams for divination. We will study a mathematical principle of Ancient China in the Chinese classic on divination.
Is vector theory prior to matrix theory in teaching of linear algebra
Pak, Hong-Kyung ; Kim, Tae-Wan ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 23, issue 2, 2010, Pages 89~99
Today linear algebra is one of compulsory courses for university mathematics by virtue of its theoretical fundamentals and fruitful applications. Vector theory and matrix theory constitute of main topics in linear algebra. In the present paper we consider the question which of the two topics is prior in teaching of linear algebra. We suggest that vector theory should be prior to matrix theory contrary to the historical order of them.
Historical review and it's application on the volume of lattice polyhedron - Focused on sequence chapter -
Kim, Hyang-Sook ; Ha, Hyoung-Soo ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 23, issue 2, 2010, Pages 101~121
This article includes an introduction, a history of Pick's theorem on lattice polyhedron and its proof, Reeve's theorem on 3-dimensional lattice polyhedrons extended from the Pick's theorem and Ehrhart polynomial generalized as an n-dimensional lattice polyhedron, and then shows the relationship between the volume of 3-dimensional polyhedron and the number of its lattice points by means of Reeve's theorem. It is aimed to apply the relationship to the visualization of sums in sequences.
A Comparison of Mathematical Contents and Processes in Early Childhood Education Curriculum between Korea and U.S.
Kye, Young-Hee ;
Journal for History of Mathematics, volume 23, issue 2, 2010, Pages 123~140
In general, early childhood mathematics education is conducted and operated in early childhood education curriculum. Moreover, Korean early childhood education is approached and conducted by an U.S. NCTM. So, it is meaningful to compare American and Korean early childhood mathematics education curriculum. Therefore, I has studied how those points of views of the mathematics education are instituted in the curriculums respectively. The main purpose of this study is to investigate principles of NCTM(National Council of Teacher of Mathematics): content standards and process standards. I hope the finding of this study would reflect to the 7th Korean early childhood mathematics education including learning and curriculum constitution.
