Have you ever wondered about how math and famous theorems were invented? Well, come to my math 381 talk on Wednesday April 24th to learn about famous mathematicians such as Pythagoras, Archimedes, Leibniz, and Newton who are credited with inventing the Pythagorean Theorem, pi, Calculus, and the binomial theorem respectively.

I am very excited about your talk this week. This sounds like it will be a great topic! It will be very interesting to learn about where these famous theorems that we have used so many times before come from.

I already told you in person but I hear by repeat, I am so excited for your talk! I enjoy anything that has something to do with Pythagorean theorem and I am so eager to hear you break it down for us.

This talk gave great background to the history of many influential mathematicians. This is definitely an interesting part of math that is not often discussed. I am glad I was here to learn about it!

Your talk was really interesting, as it gave background on mathematicians who are mentioned all the time in math courses. I really liked learning more about these people who invented the theorems that we use everyday!
