As I’m gearing up for our STEM teacher professional development grant to start up this summer, I’ve begun to collect and curate a number of resources that I will be sharing with the 7th, 8th, and 9th grade teachers. One, I’d like to share with you today is called “Minds of Modern Mathematics” and was produced by IBM. From the description, you can see the amount of information they’ve included:
Inspired by the 1960’s-era World’s Fair exhibit, IBM today announced an iPad app, Minds of Modern Mathematics, available for free at the App Store. The app is a vintage-meets-digital interactive recreation of a massive 50-foot-long timeline from IBM’s World’s Fair exhibit — detailing hundreds of artifacts, milestones and giants of math from 1000 AD to 1960.
You can download the app for free inside the Apple App Store, and IBM produced a very nice video of the app so you can see how interesting the chronology and information is. I’ve embedded the YouTube Video below.
