4-colour theorem
A brief history and description of the 4-colour theorem and its proof.
Aboriginal Perspectives
Aboriginal Perspectives is a companion web site to Math Central. It is part of Mathematics with a Human Face. The purpose is to create and make available lesson ideas for teachers, constructed around video clips with an Aboriginal focus. The site is under construction and in its infancy but the intent is that the number of video clips will increase and the lessons will span all areas of the curriculum.

Aboriginal resources in mathematics education
Karen designed this website to assist teachers and pre-service teachers in the area of mathematics from Kindergarten to Grade 12 . Here you will find a multitude of teacher resources to assist you in incorporating Aboriginal content in your mathematics program.
Approximating pi.
This note is a response to a question sent to Quandaries and Queries by Ben Dixon asking how to approximate pi. Chris wrote a nice description of the method used by Archimedes in approximately 250 BC.
Euclid's proof of the Theorem of Pythagoras
This note is a response to a question sent to Quandaries and Queries by Sean Smith asking which of the many proofs of the Theorem of Pythagoras is due to Euclid.
Frieze Designs in Indigenous Art
In this article Judi and Harley illustrate the seven frieze patterns using art of the indigenous peoples of North America. They then develope some of the mathematics of frieze patterns at a level that is accessible to many students. The teacher notes contain activities with frieze patterns for students at all levels.
Games from the Aboriginal People of North America
This is a collection of Aboriginal games that teachers can use to integrate culture into Mathematics lessons. The mathematical content includes patterns and relations, probability, data management, numbers and operations, problem solving, critical thinking, and geometry. Students will have fun with the games while they apply their mathematical knowledge.
Mayan Numerals
Studying Mayan Numerals makes a good connection between Math and Social Studies. Lessons on Mayan Numerals can be designed for a wide range of ages. For the primary grades it may be fun to look at this concept using shells, pebbles, and stones. This will help the students learn about place values, and the sorting and collection of different objects. For grades 4 - 6 manipulatives may also be used and then the students can go on to try some problems on their own (suggested exercises given). A Mayan Numerals lesson would also lend nicely to teaching about time and the cycle of a year.
Some Ancient Numerical Notation (HTML ou PDF)
A look back at an early written numerical notation.
The sieve of Eratosthenes
Charles Hewitt asked Quandaries and Queries for an algorithm to determine whether a number is prime. Penny wrote this response about the Greek scholar Eratosthenes and his sieve.
Towards a Better Understanding of Pi Using the Idea of Limits.
Ed describes here an activity that students can undertake to approximate pi. It is adapted from the process used by Archimedes in about 240 BC. Students who work through this activity will improve their understanding of pi.
Why is a circle divided into 360 degrees?
Kurtis Kredo sent this question to Quandaries and Queries and we thought the answer Chris gave deserved to be in the Resource Room.
Why is lbs the abbreviation for pounds?
Nancy Mutdosch sent this question to Quandaries and Queries and we put Chris' answer here also as we thought it might be of interest to other teachers.
