Summary: This chapter is divided into five sections corresponding to five periods: the Colonial (1510‒1868), the Wars of Independence (1869‒1898), the first military occupation (1899‒1902), the Republican (1902‒1958), and the Cuban Revolution (1959‒2013). Mathematics has an extraordinary development in all directions, particularly in its teaching, in the last period.
