Abstract

This study examined the legal basis of elementary school mathematics education during the 36 - year period of Japanese colonial rule. For this purpose, the education - related laws promulgated in the period of Japanese colonial rule were investigated and the major changes in the contents related to elementary mathematics education were analyzed. Compared to other subjects, elementary mathematics education was developed in a relatively stable and consistent manner. At the same time, there seemed to be a considerable difference between elementary mathematics education in the early and late 36th year of Japanese colonial rule. Arithmetic education has been changed to “Sansu” education, and arithmetic education, which was centered on numbers and calculations, has expanded to include figures, geometry, and algebraic calculations.


Keywords: elementary school mathematics education during the period of Japanese colonial rule
