ab: Summary: In this theoretical article, we aim at theorizing the old
statement that mathematics teachers might profit from studying the
history of mathematics. We do this by drawing upon the theoretical
framework of mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT). A selection of
international studies on the history and pedagogy of mathematics is
used as starting points for discussing how the different domains of
teachers’ MKT ‒ to a larger or smaller degree ‒ can profit from
the history of mathematics.
