This paper describes the project that was undertaken in the South East of England, and which aimed to introduce the history of mathematics at the primary and secondary level. The project was conducted through collaborative teaching practice (peer based network of teachers collaborating on research, planning, teaching in teams, and assessing the outcomes of lessons) and was based on the premise that the history of mathematics can improve both the motivation and attainment when used as a contextual background in the teaching of mathematics at this level.
