F'14 MSTE Friday Lunch Series - October 31, 2014

Posted on: 10/27/2014 10:37 AM
Topics: [ Announcements ] [ Education ] [ Friday Lunch ] [ Math ]

Speaker: Peter Braunfeld

Time: 12:00 PM

Location: Classroom 201, 505 E. Green St. Champaign IL 61820

Title: Georg 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.
