Mr Barton's Web Whizz Video 19 - Maths History
Last updated 11 February 2012, created 04 February 2012, viewed 1,598
The 19th in a series of videos where each week I visit my favourite mathematics websites. Mathematics has one of the richest, most interesting histories of all the subjects, full of sparks of genius and shady goings on, and yet this is largely something that students are ignorant of. The wo More…nderful Mac Tutor History of Mathematics website can rectify all of this, providing a comprehensive catalogues of all the big (and not so big) names in Mathematics. And what’s more, they even have a Twitter feed so you can get updated with the Mathematician of the Day every day of the year!
