Published on

Join Prof. V. Frederick Rickey (West Point) and Asst. Prof. Douglas R.Furman

(SUNY Ulster) on a 10 day Mathematical Tour in Greece.

This tour will be offered in conjunction with a 3 credit (5 week – 15hour) course which will focus on the mathematics on the Ancient Greek world.
The course is scheduled to run May 25 through June 22.
We will learn about the mathematics and lives of: Thales, Pythagoras, Euclid, Archimedes and
Aristarchus to name a few.
The only prerequisites for those taking the course for credit, are an interest in the history of math, college level reading and writing and basic math skills.

During our trip we will visit the cities associated with the famous mathematicians of the ancient
Greek world, as well as the major cultural icons to learn about the various aspects of ancient Greek
culture (mathematics, myth, art, philosophy, history and society)
