Professor N. J. Wildberger's lecture series on the History of Mathematics, follows about half the textbook, "Mathematics and it's History,"
by John Stillwell (Springer, 3E). Lessons are designed to follow the, "flow of ideas," with historical notes, and a few proofs along the way.
He starts with ancient Greeks, Arab, Chinese and Hindu developments, polynomial equations and algebra, analytic and projective geometry, calculus and
infinite series, number theory, mechanics and curves, complex numbers and algebra, differential geometry, topology, hypercomplex numbers, and complex numbers
and curves. He presents the content for a broad audience, not exclusively to mathematics majors. There are now 19 lectures in the set, spanning 25 videos.
What makes this course different from and quite useful in comparison to other Math History lectures, is that the lecturer and textbook address the
'maths of history' that all the talk is about and not just the 'history of maths'. Where many other History of Math classes, informative and important,
yet primarily a study of history, this video course focuses on the "maths that made
history" and explaining what those maths are. "I highly recommended this lecture series and am a big fan," ~MW.
