Abstract
This chapter aims to provide the reader with a brief introduction to the origins of the various branches of mathematics. While tracing back these origins, an insight will be offered into how the mathematics as a discipline developed throughout many thousands of years and the variety of cultures. Key practices of the discipline of mathematics will be highlighted, followed by a discussion which argues in favour of incorporating these practices into the school mathematics.
