About the trip

This grant has blessed with me with the opportunity to visit monuments and places of study related to my chosen mathematicians.  I will be spending one week Greece and one week and Italy.  Below you will find a list of mathematicians that I would like to research and the major cities where I will be staying.  I would like to bring back pictures and experiences that my future students will enjoy learning about.  I hope to make the history of mathematics less abstract and distant for them.

Who am I studying?

Thales (born 624 BC)

Pythagoras (born 570 BC)

Euclid (born 300BC)

Fibonacci (born 1170)

Leonardo daVinci (born 1452)

Galileo (born 1564)

Where am I going?

Athens, Greece

Paros, Greece

Samos, Greece

Florence, Italy

Vinci, Italy

Pisa, Italy

Rome, Italy
