History of Mathematics

MAT 101

Info tab content
Throughout the course, we will be studying some of the most beautiful and timeless mathematical problems and solutions (theorems and proofs), and their discoverers, as well as the historical developments that led to each breakthrough. Rather than going deeply into a single complete theory as we understand it today, in this course the material is drawn from a broad variety of sources and topics and arranged roughly chronologically. One should leave this course with a bird's-eye view of many developments in mathematics from antiquity up to the 21st century. This makes the course both fun and interesting, and also challenging.
