About This Lesson

This is a mini-research paper project. The studenrts choose a famous mathematician to research and write a 2-3 page report on. We will usually have discussed several mathematicians prior to this. I tell them it may be fun to pick one with the same birthday or one you are interested in because of their name or because of their topic of study (refer to websites at bottom of handout for a list of possible choices). I require they use at least 2 resources. I also give a very detailed list of exactly what is required in each paragraph of their paper. A rubric is also provided for grading.

Resource would benefit from an expert sample, and more guidance or a sample set of mathmaticians.
