By Sacha la Bastide-van Gemert, Marianne Vincken, William Third

This learn offers a ancient research of Freudenthal’s didactic principles and his didactic occupation. it really is partially biographical, but additionally contributes to the historiography of arithmetic schooling and addresses heavily comparable questions similar to: what's arithmetic and the place does it begin? Which function does arithmetic play in society and what impact does it have at the triumphing perspectives bearing on its accompanying didactics?.

Hans Freudenthal (1905–1990), professor in arithmetic, scientist, literator, yet primarily mathematics-educator, used to be inextricably associated with the adjustments which happened in arithmetic schooling and didactics throughout the moment half the final century. His variety as a scientist and his inexhaustible efforts to set up the didactics of arithmetic as a heavily pursued technology, made Freudenthal's impact during this zone massive.

Today, within the gentle of the discussions approximately arithmetic schooling, within which the decision for `genuine’ arithmetic rather than the so-called 'kindergarten'-mathematics might be heard, Freudenthal's strategy appears passé. although, the result of this learn (which is especially according to records from Freudenthal’s large own archive) exhibits a extra subtle photo. The direct id of 'kindergarten'-mathematics with Freudenthal’s view on arithmetic schooling isn't really justified. 'Realistic arithmetic' as endorsed by way of Freudenthal contains greater than only a functional introductory and may, between different issues, continually goal at educating 'genuine' arithmetic within the end.

In this notion Dijksterhuis’ conviction as it appeared in the discussion with Mrs. Ehrenfest could be recognized. In its description of the curriculum the committee did not strictly prescribe the teaching methods, but explicitly gave the teachers a free hand. However, they advised that science and mathematics were to be taught by one and the same teacher 24 2 Mathematics Education in Secondary Schools and Didactics … to ascertain that the cohesion between the science subjects would be expressed better.

The value of an education was, in his opinion, found in its possible use in concrete situations in life. His ideas contradicted the view of people such as for example Dijksterhuis, to whom the educational value of the HBS (and there notably that of the mathematics education) was the primary matter of importance in didactics. After the Second World War many of Kohnstamm’s ideas were realised in the on-going modernization of the Dutch educational system [74]. There were for example more people arguing in favour of a mathematics education that would take the child and not the mathematical system as a starting point.

To prove theorems a child found trivial did not matter and Dijksterhuis simply ignored such complaints. Een kind moet tenslotte ook leeren, zich tot gedachtenconcentratie te dwingen en het is niet altijd noodig, dat het het waarom beseft van de dingen, die men het laat doen. ) [36] This ended the discussion between Mrs. Ehrenfest and Dijksterhuis in the Bijvoegsel and a period in which the journal functioned as a medium for the various opinions and discussions on mathematics education started. Dijksterhuis, who, in any case as far as the education for the advanced pupils was concerned, represented the common opinion, had the final say in the discussion.
