Abstract [en]

This paper is the result of a comparative literature study aimed at identifying relevant historical mathematical contexts that may be applicable to present day mathematics education. Five Swedish textbooks in algebra from the period around the year 1800 are scrutinized. A content analysis and a comparison between seven categories shows that there exist several historical features that may be used in teaching. These have the potential to serve both teachers and learners of mathematics.
