Meets NCTM Standards:

Learn what it means to prove theorems in mathematics and why it is important.
  • Who is Bernhard Riemann?
  • What is proof?
  • What does it mean to prove something in math?
  • What is an axiom?
  • How can you prove that the stereographic projection projects circles onto circles?
  • How can you prove that when a plane cuts a sphere, the intersection is a circle?
This lesson uses ideas from several of the previous lectures in the Dimensions video lecture series. Stereographic projections on a sphere are used for proof in this lesson. The images are not only interesting and useful, they are very beautiful. The math can be rather intimidating at times, but the visuals help.
