They had no idea either of the connection between the sciences, or of the methods by which they were created. This was followed by John Fauvel and Jeremy Gray’s sourcebook (1987), produced together with a series of short texts from the Open University. This performed the most important function, stressed in the British National Curriculum for history, of foregrounding primary material and enabling students to see.

An ABSOLUTE MUST for anyone interested in math and its development through history.
However, I wish there were a companion volume on the mathematics of history.

I have been teaching history of mathematics for some years and this is in my view a highly valuable, interesting sourcebook in this field. It is also modern when compared to other sourcebooks. IN particular the authors often provides the reader with different, sometimes contradicting interpretations of the sources, which is both exciting and instructive. Some of these texts also give the reader a sense of the (sometimes) very low reliability of the extant sources, an aspect often ignored in other books on the same subject. A warning: the authors give a minimal amount of explanations in short headings for each chapter; therefore readers -especially beginners- should not expect to find in it a historical narrative. At best it can serve to illustrate such a narrative. Or, in other words, it shoud be read with one of the classical histories of mathematics.
