50 Centuries in 50 minutes (A Brief History of Mathematics)

Is a Keynote by Next Week Possible? Find Out How.

John Dersch (9/19/12)

How did we get the mathematics that is studied today? Who was responsible for major advances in the mathematics that we now take for granted? When and where did this work take place? Such questions will be addressed by tracing the development of mathematics from 3000 B.C. to the dawn of the 21st century. There will be time for questions and suggestions for further study will be made.
