A mathematician is someone who uses an extensive knowledge of mathematics in his or her work, typically to solve mathematical problems. Mathematics is concerned with numbers, data, quantity, structure, space, models, and change.
One of the earliest known mathematicians was Thales of Miletus. We can divide the era of mathematician known before 21st century and after 21st century. From the era before 21st century, people were familiar with Phytagoras, Al-Khwarizmi, Blaise Pascal, John Venn and many big names for mathematics history.
This week, the 10th graders were discussing those big names in mathematics world, and they put the information on posters. Doing this, they became more interested in the topic and excitedly did the poser project. (Umi Kurniahati)
