In order to emphasize the importance of mathematics in our daily lives, AC students were challenged to create a 2-4 minute video that included a brief overview of a particular person’s contribution to mathematics, science, or technology. They were able to choose from a list of people ranging from Euclid of Alexandria to John Forbes Nash.
The video had to be easily understood by a wide audience and needed to include how the student believes their daily life has been shaped by this person’s discoveries and work.
