The annual 7th grade Great Mathematicians project is underway. Dr. Sabrina Goldberg‘s students are currently fleshing out faux profiles for their assigned mathematician on The Social Network, our in-house social network powered by Elgg. This year, Don Buckley and I are asking kids to distill their mathematician into a graphic to be used on their digital profiles and on their physical poster.

Examples:
DeCartes – Cartesian Plane
Newton – gravity, apple
Tesla – electric current, lightbulb, or lightning bolt
Erno Rubik – Rubik’s cube
