We have created a timeline ...
Together with our pupils, we have created a timeline with famous mathematicians of each country in order to get to know more about the historical mathematical development of the respective participating countries. While working on the timeline, two main aspects became visible:
1. There are no famous Icelandic mathematicians (Iceland does not have as many inhabitants as the other European countries);
2. Every country has taken advantage from the different mathematical studies and made alike progresses so far. The evidence is that the European culture has its origin in the ancient Greece. In the old age, many mathematicians were Greek but some of them lived in the south of Italy, ex Magna Grecia. So the question is: are they Italian, Greek or both?
This led to interesting and exciting discussions.
Look at it
A journey throughout time and Maths.......
From the antiquity till to the present, many people, men and women, managed to succeed in various Maths sectors. From the Babylonian and Egyptian era till the 21th AC century many scientists and philosophers contributed to the development of the Maths….
Many of those Mathematicians are presented to the below timeline. All of them are coming from our countries and we are proud of them!!!!!
The Greek team has mentioned not only the Greek men Mathematicians, but also the ancient Greek women ones, who are unknown to the most, in order to illustrate that nothing in life is donated and women have fought for everything, prevailing racism and prejudice trying to implement the rights of equality in work and in life…
The timeline is a collaborative work by all students.
