History of Mathematics for Secondary Teachers

Description:
This course traces the development of mathematics from ancient times up to and including 17th century developments in the calculus. Emphasis is on the development of mathematical ideas and methods of problems solving. Attention will also be paid to the relevance of history to mathematics teaching as well as investigation into the origins of non-Euclidean geometry even though this comes well after Newton and Leibniz, because of its relatively elementary character and fascinating nature.
