Ri: “How the ancient Greeks shaped modern mathematics”
12 March 2014

The Royal Institution(Ri), with the support of the SNF, has produced a video-animation showcasing how Ancient Greek revolutionary thinkers changed the way we see mathematics, as not merely a way of performing calculations, but a way of understanding and testing the reality of the world around us.

Founded in 1799, the Royal Institution (Ri) is one of the world’s oldest and leading science communication organizations, which aims to ignite passion for scientific discovery in people of all ages, particularly young people.

The SNF supports the development of a multifaceted educational project on the Greek legacy of mathematics and how it has influenced the development of mathematics in the West.
