Famous Mathematicians Timeline and Pieces
I came across a dime store find of a book called Historical Connections in Mathematics, Resources for Using History of Mathematics in the Classroom by Wilbert and Luetta Reimer. Great find!! It has colouring biography sheets, biography read aloud pages, and cool math activities. I was so inspired by the fun possibilities for math that we made the book part of our learning year. We then found the book, Mathematicians Are People, Too, Stories from the Lives of Great Mathematicians by the same authors at the library. This book is perfect for Charlotte Mason narration! :) Our daughter loved it and we decided to buy a copy for ourselves. I began merging the two books for organizational purposes and came up with the the idea for a mini timeline for mathematicians.
We will be adding go-along notebooking sheets to the website shortly to go with this year-long project. We'll read the books one biographical focus at a time, do some activities for each, finish up with a notebooking page, and then put the corresponding timeline piece on the wall.
