Abstract

A recent collaborative project produced both audio- and text-based resources on the history of mathematics to support the teaching of mathematics. The benefits of using the history of mathematics as a motivational pedagogic tool in the undergraduate curriculum are discussed, with specific reference to the use of MP3 formats as a technique to support different learning styles and future modes of learning. The deliverables produced by the project are discussed.
