Maths is Good for You

The site is dedicated to students of mathematics between the ages of 11 and 18 and to teachers who would like to have some ready-to-use and downloadable resources in the history of mathematics. The prevailing modern view of mathematical ability is one which entails creativity and transcends the more limited concept of technical ability. There is, however, little widely available material which, in a simple and accessible way, introduces the secondary school age children to the world of 'creative' mathematics. This web site aims to do just that - to contribute to developing the base of knowledge and resources by concentrating particularly on introducing the historical context into the study of mathematics at Key Stages 3 and 4. Topics include: Famous Nations and their Mathematics such as the Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, Arabs and Chinese. Wroksheets include 'Egyptian Unit Fractions', 'Egyptian numerals', 'Babylonian numerals'.
