TitleGeorg Cantor and the Idea of Infinity

Description:

Educators are always talking about "what mathematicians really do." Fact is, they do lots of very different things, most of which require technical vocabulary and a lot of mathematical background

Around 1890, Georg Cantor invents a theory of infinite sets and shocks the mathematical world. Luckily, this theory is not only genuinely elegant, butdoesn't require much background. So, it's a wonderful example for both high school teachers and students to show at least what some mathematicians do or have done.
