Eureka! A History of Mathematical Ideas 
Prerequisite 
MATH 261 
Course Outline 
Course Outline 
Writing Intensive 
Yes 
Description 
We will explore the history of mathematics from ancient to modern times by using famous equations as entry points to different periods in mathematical history. Once in a period we will explore the development of mathematics at that time, the people involved in that development, the culture at the time, and then fast forward to the modern implications of that particular branch of mathematics. We will move chronologically and connect the mathematics to the development of science, politics, art, music, and many other fields.
