In the mid eighties, mathematics educators propagating the teaching of mathematics by applications represented a small and unique group. Emphasizing the value of necessity of applications in mathematics education was judged as theoretical and practical action against the dominance of pure mathematics in schools raised by the new math movement. At present, in 1996, this ‘movement’ towards more applications has gained quite some momentum (Keitel 1993). The aim of this chapter is to establish a reasonably accurate picture of the debate and actual state of using and applying mathematics in schools. We start a historical reflection on the ongoing deals with the arguments for applications in mathematics education. Different aspects of using and applying mathematics are dealt with detail. The case studies show also different ways in which progress is made in implementing more applications oriented curricula. We reach a rather positive outlook in the final reflection but recognize several obstacles and problems that are in the way of this positive outlook.
