1) discuess the characteristics and roles of the key players in devolping mathematics from geometry and counting to irrational numers and coninuity

2) choose 3-5 metaphors that stand out the most in your mind from the reading and interprety their mathematical meanings

3) why doe you think Berkinski begins the book with Zeno'a Paradoz? What signnificance does it have and how does it relate to the bigger pictre?

4) Berinkski give many example of mathematical inventions througout history. Disuss there invetntions particularly in light of the fact that we now at the pre cal and calulus level, take many of them for granted
