History of Mathematics

When I’m not making art or writing comics I also teach history of mathematics at the University of Toronto and McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. I created a page about my teaching practice and academic publishing record here.

In the future I would like to use graphic art to explore and communicate history of mathematics in new ways. Mathematical objects illustrated below include Napier’s bones, spiral defined by the golden ratio, Hindu-Arabic numerals, Cardano’s cube for algebraic solution to the cubic equation, sinusoidal function, Coxeter graph, Armillary sphere, Pascal’s arithmetical triangle, diagrammatic proof of the gou gu theorem (Pythagorean theorem in China), Fibonacci’s rabbit breeding problem, and a sphere.
