A match-up activity for students to learn about the history of maths. Students match up famous mathematicians names, pictures, dates, 'most famous for', 'something else' and 'about the person' cards. I suggest allow students to use laptops etc to support. Designed to instigate knowledge and awareness of some of the most famous mathematicians as well as learning methods for finding info online. My Year 12 groups really enjoyed it! Tried and tested in the classroom many times. This download includes a pdf file as well as the original powerpoint file for easy editing.
