In this course, students will explore real mathematics problems from ancient history. These will include Queen Dido problems, Zeno’s Paradox, and ancient inheritance problems. We’ll do the math and put the problems in their historical contexts. We may dabble in a few mythological problems as well. Mathematical concepts will include pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, and some calculus, but pre-requisite knowledge of these topics is not required.
