From: Kavon Rueter <kavon@mathisradical.com> To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2003101115:33:54 Subject: Math History Posters Hello! I am a math teacher in Colorado Springs, CO. Three years ago I wanted math history posters to share with my students  such topics as, who came up with algebra and when? Or, what did Descartes contribute besides the coordinate plane? However, I could not find any such items at the teacher stores. That is when I made my own. Other math teachers have since shown an interest in my posters. I am still creating more after school each day. There is so much to cover! Some categories that I have are: Regions  Egytptian, Greek, Mayan, and more. Eras  Medieval, Renaissance, 20th Century, and more. Topics  Algebra, Women in Mathematics, Calculating Machines. Mathematicians  Descartes, Euler, Turing and more. If you would like to see what I have done so far, please visit my online Math History Catalog. The URL is at http://www.mathisradical.com/Catalog.htm I'm not a professional sales person, just a math teacher who came up with a product that fits a need in a mathematics classroom. They are inexpensive and useful. I also have a free newsletter that includes lesson plans, biographies of mathematicians and Black Line Masters for your classroom.
