THE GREATEST MATHEMATICIANS OF ALL TIME ARE SUSPECTS FOR MURDER!
AN INNOVATIVE WAY FOR TEACHING SECONDARY SCHOOL MATHEMATICS TROUGH A DETECTIVE STORY
Book Description:
It is a work of fiction based on actual incidents, and its heroes are real people who left their mark on the history of mathematics. It takes place in Paris in 1900 and is the story of a murder for which the greatest mathematicians of all time are considered suspects. Each suspect’s statement to the police leads to a mathematical problem.
The project on which the book is based took 3rd prize in the 6th Microsoft European Innovative Teachers Forum in Vienna in 2009. The distinction was awarded in the special category in which European teachers vote for the best projects.
