Research on HPM Teaching Supported by Hawgent Dynamic Mathematics Software: Take “The Recognition of Circle” as an Example


Education technology
Mathematics teaching




History and Pedagogy of Mathematics (HPM) is one of the important research fields in mathematics education, which has received widespread attention from the mathematics education community because of its educational value. Modern mathematics education technology plays an important auxiliary role in mathematics teaching. Hawgent is a dynamic mathematics software that can present abstract mathematical knowledge visually and static mathematical knowledge dynamically. In view of this, this research takes “the recognition of circle” as an example to conduct a research on HPM teaching supported by Hawgent Dynamic Mathematics Software in three aspects: analyze the contents and uncover the history of mathematics, make the products and show the history of mathematics, design the teaching and integrate the history of Mathematics.
