In groups of two, do a web search and name a significant accomplishment
related to geometry to share with the rest of the class.
Girard Desargues (1591-1661) Rene Descartes (1596-1650)
Pierre de Fermat (1601-1665) Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
Leonhard Euler (1707-1783) Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777-1855)
Individually, perform a web search in order to
name a significant accomplishment that is related to geometry geometry.
Find a picture of the person (unless otherwise noted, and then find a picture related to their accomplishment instead). Email the web address of your picture to Dr. Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can look at it up front as you share the accomplishment with the rest of the class.
