A Little Math History Two
In this course we continue to investigate the 5000-year history of mathematics, learning about the lives of some great mathematicians and their discoveries. We will study the contexts of these discoveries and recognize how they developed from the cultural, economic, and religious needs of their time. For example, mathematical thought often flourished at times when societies had enough wealth to support intellectual discoveries, or in times of war or great upheaval. This course, requires no advanced knowledge of mathematics and is not dependent on the first course in this series. Joan Cohen Jones is a retired mathematics professor who has taught a number of OLLI courses.
