Class

Mathematics in Civilisation

Class Details

Mathematics dates back to the dawn of history. We study its growth, focusing on some key problems and triumphs. We shall see how mathematics inter-penetrates virtually all other areas of culture (both scientific and artistic). We look at the (many extraordinary) lives of the great mathematicians. No prior knowledge required. Questions are encouraged.
