ab: Summary: In this paper we want to highlight the use of history of
mathematical problem solving by presenting examples which should help
to give some evidence to the following three theses: (1) Historical
thinking processes might help to better understand, appreciate and
reinforce the thinking processes of students, (2) Heuristics which
proved to be very successful for some 5000 years should be emphasized,
especially when observed “in" students (3) Change of patterns of
mathematical beliefs across region and time might deliver a framework
for the analysis and development of students’ beliefs.
