Travel through time and across many cultures to glimpse the lives and works of mathematics. We’ll travel through ancient China, gaze at the Pyramids, visit with tribal artists and weavers in Africa and South America, and tour beautiful mosques in medieval Spain. Some communities supported their native mathematics, others did not. Learn about the rich diversity of men and women whose talent in mathematics will inspire you. We’ll find themes in art, music, architecture, pop culture – even religion. Come explore with us and surprise yourself by finding math in your community, too.
