Library Display
For all the students hunched over their textbooks furiously solving problems for that next math class, this display attempts to answer the question, "What is this leading to?" From at least the time of Pythagoras, mathematicians have attempted to explain our world and our place in the cosmos through measurements and formulas. Eventually the science of physics was born, which relies heavily on mathematics.
There were many, many brilliant participants in this endeavor between Pythagoras and the 21st Century, and narrowing down the contributors to a mere five was difficult. Without their work we would not have automobiles, space travel, refrigeration, GPS or a myriad of other things we take for granted today.
The display was created by Mary Kira.
