Rizanesander’s Recknekonsten or “The art of arithmetic” – the oldest known textbook of mathematics in Swedish

Abstract : The present paper considers an important cultural treasure in the early Swedish history of mathematics education. After the reformation in the 16th century it became possible to study mathematics in Sweden. The first printed textbook in Swedish on arithmetic appeared in 1614, but already in 1601, the oldest known manuscript in Swedish on arithmetic was written by Hans Larsson Rizanesander. In this paper we investigate Rizanesander’s manuscript in its historical context.
