ab: Summary: This article is devoted to the formation of mathematics education
in Russia. Although first-rate mathematicians were working in Russia as
early as the first half of the eighteenth century (Euler, to name one),
nothing close to mass-scale teacher preparation existed. Almost one
hundred years had to pass until such preparation came into being. This
article, based on archival materials, analyzes some biographies of
mathematics teachers of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries,
examines how they themselves acquired their education, and discusses
certain episodes from their careers.
