Magically Miraculous Math: Day 4


Today in class, we did research in the computer lab. Students were asked to research a mathematician and create a PowerPoint presentation. The students had not heard of many of the mathematicians which made for a great learning opportunity. Tomorrow the students will be presenting what they learned to the class. You can see the second period’s presentations  here and the third period’s presentations at here. The list students had to choose from was (in no particular order):


  1. John Forbes Nash
