Teaching Mathematics with a Historical Perspective

Teaching Mathematics with a Historical Perspective

   Please see the actual Website for content. 

This course is a panoramic view over all of mathematics. Each week covers an other area of mathematics. 

The focus is to look at historical developments of mathematics, which includes also everything up to now.

History tells us much about the structure of mathematics and about the learning of mathematics.

Prerequisites are interest in mathematics and the courage to look also at completely new things. 

Some calculus background is helpful but not needed. No book is required. We will recommend some.

The course will have a short evaluation part each class, a reading component as well as a final project.
