About This List

These are the most downloaded episodes of Math Science History!
  1. Math is part of our genetic makeup, and history proves it to be true! From 30,000 years ago to today, math has guided us, inspired us, and fueled our scientific progress.  For more information on the ancient Mesopotamian clay tablet, you can see them up close on Dr. Bill Casselman's website at http://www.math.ubc.ca/~cass/Euclid/ybc/ybc.html.  You can also read more about the tablet at Mathematical Association of America at https://www.maa.org/press/periodicals/convergence/the-best-known-old-babylonian-tablet
  2. John Dalton helped to usher in atomic research. Our current subatomic research has evolved from his very beginnings when he began to identify his elemental theories in chemical reactions in his first five elements. These five simple notations opened up a whole world of elemental calculations for future generations to discover.  If you are interested in reading more about his work and theories, you can visit my blog at https://www.mathsciencehistory.com  Thanks for listening!

  3. I have a secret about my celebrity crush. But we must be discrete about it! If you are interested in learning more about discrete math and my favorite Die Hard puzzle, please feel free to visit me at www.mathsciencehistory.com and read more about it (there are visuals too).  Also, while you are at my Website, please feel free to click on the coffee link and buy me a cup of coffee! 
  4. In 1870 Matilda Joslyn Gage published her tract "Woman as Inventor." This pamphlet listed many women in science who went unnoticed while their male counterparts received accolades. Even this year, not one woman received a Nobel in science or medicine. This podcast names the many women who deserved scientific accolades for their contributions to science. And, it lists several things we can do to fix the Matilda Effect!  If you would like to read more about the Matilda Effect and several tremendous women in science, you can read more at https://www.mathsciencehistory.com 
  5. The story about Hypatia of Alexandria is almost 2,000 years old. She was one of our earliest female mathematicians, astronomers, philosophers, and professors. But above all of that, she was loved by Alexandria! So why was she murdered?! The answer is in the podcast! If you are interested in reading more about the history of math and science, please visit me on my blog at www.MathScienceHistory.com ! Thank you for listening! Until next week, carpe diem!
