ab: Summary: From a multicultural perspective, this research investigated to
what extent Korean mathematics textbooks use history of mathematics.
The results show even though educational use of history presented in
Korean mathematics textbooks may provide a rich outlook, it does not
encourage a fundamental change in the educational practice of school
mathematics that has traditionally been entrenched in the Eurocentric
narrative of mathematics. This suggests that the mathematics textbooks
were not organized effectively to promote studentsâ€™ understanding of
diversity. Based on the results, we discuss the implications for the
development of mathematics textbook from multicultural perspectives.
