Through the exploration of a different Mathematician each Monday, students are introduced to the wacky and wild characters that have created and discovered the principles and concepts that every student learns today. From the Pythagorean who was thrown off a boat for believing in irrational numbers, to the brilliant 20-year-old who was shot for love, the story of Mathematics is full of bold and daring personalities, as well as a large number of interesting discoveries to accompany them. In this presentation, we'll go through a number of slides dedicated to everyone from Florence Nightingale (funny Pie Charts) to Leonhard Euler (Doodling with Euler’s Formula), and show how their stories, alongside related activities or formulae, can be used as a hook at the beginning of a week of mathematics.
