research the history of mathematics , math homework help

I want you to do some research on History of Mathematics. Go to the following link:

http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/index.html

Click either on the Biographies Index or the History Topics Index. Select a subject that sounds interesting and click on it. Then report back to the class with a short paper about what you researched, why you selected that topic, what you found out, and whether you recommend the topic to your classmates (or anyone else).
