Teaching the History of Mathematics

Topics: history mathematics

One of the courses Dr. Helfer particularly enjoys teaching is the History of Mathematics. According to the MU course description, this “includes topics in the history of mathematics from early civilizations onwards”, and the subject is explored “as an abstract discipline and as a subject which interacts with others and with practical concerns.”
