History of Mathematics


"The famous mathematician, Liberace." (should have been Fibonnaci)

"It's algebra, therefore it's boring. You can quote me on that."

"Vectors, groups, rings and other forms of perversion."

"Let's paint it red and add raisins..."

"Comparing integration to the method of exhaustion is like comparing a horse-drawn donkey (sic) to a Mercedes 700 series - they both have wheels."
