Purpose:
Aiding middle school students in exploring the process of development of mathematical ideas—drawing from their historical context.
Theory:
Research Question:
Can we draw upon the history of mathematics to identify research projects—applicable to middle school students—with minimal prerequisite theoretical machinery to understand mathematical problems and the solutions?
Method:
Literature Analysis
Defer to the textbooks (assume they are accessible, probably wrong): Bibliometric analysis of mathematical ideas with non-trivial historical development that were adapted in mathematical textbooks.
