An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Wednesday, repeating until March 21, 2018


To trace the history of math, we will go back to about 2,000 BCE in each of five places: Tigris-Euphrates, Nile, Aegean Sea, Yellow River and the Indus River. We will then go to Baghdad and the Islamic-Iranian culture, which benefit-ted from those five cultural flowerings. We’ll finish with some Renaissance Italian mathematics. Instructed by vol-unteer Pete Gilmore. Space is limited to 16 people. Register with the Front Desk at 617-796-1660. Free.
