ab: Summary: This article discusses how the inclusion of history of mathematics
in mathematics education draws heavily on a teacher’s mathematical
knowledge for teaching, in particular horizon content knowledge, in the
context of curricular changes. We discuss the role of history of
mathematics in school curricula, its inclusion in textbooks and its
consequences for the mathematical knowledge needed for teaching. We
address the matter from three national settings (Denmark, Norway and
the United States). These settings exemplify how, in particular,
teachers’ horizon content knowledge needs to be broader than what is
necessary for only the current curriculum.
