WorldCat, our new
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
other things we take for granted today.
The display was created by Mary Kira.
