Math essay ideas
Not really sure where to post this one.
One of my math modules is a history of course and we have to write an essay. Its been many years since I wrote an essay but Im just struggling to come up with a good topic.
I have two ideas so far; how every day maths has changed since ancient times to modern times (or something similar) or how reliable are statistics (ie in blood/dna matching for use in a murder trial, etc)
I would be interested in hearing some other ideas if anybody can enlighten me!
What constitutes "proof", and what does the community actually accept and or use.
