Historical Mathematics Problems

A Resource for Teachers
 
 

This data base collection of historical problems (1600+) spans mathematics history through the 1930s, revealing both international contributions and changing cultures.

The problems connect with the areas of number, measurement, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, number theory, probability, statistics, pre-calculus, calculus, financial mathematics, discrete mathematics, logic, and recreational mathematics.

Each problem statement includes its source (if known) and relevant solution commentary.

This website is an offshoot of the MathNEXUS website, which offers more than 5000 pages of information relevant to the teaching of mathematics in grades 6-14.
