This summer, the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science (MSMS) Summer Enrichment Camp offers a class about the history of math called Mathematical Discoveries.
The students learn about ancient calculation techniques. Students will study about civilizations such as the Mayans and their number systems. Through this class, they will learn about the history and creation of present-day math.
“It’s definitely very interesting to learn the backstory behind these mathematical creations,” said Madison Wardlaw, Mathematical Discoveries camp counselor at MSMS.
