History of Mathematical Puzzles
This is a strand paper…part 1 of eventually 4 parts.
I have included a copy of the rubric that needs to be met for this paper.
Please make sure to follow the rubric, use APA style, and utilize the topics I gave.
These are the ones that I told my teacher I would be using.
-History of mathematics is interwoven with mathematical puzzles / games
-Rhind papyrus and Egyptians
-Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll , writer and math lecturer)
-Fibonacci (even though he was a topic choice, he is part of the history of math puzzles.)
– Cardan and his game of rings
