Entire School: It’s Math Monday!
Mathematicians are often recognized for their persistence. One is example of this involves a famous mathematician, Pierre de Fermat, who made contributions to many branches of mathematics including probability, statistics and number theory. In 1637, he wrote a statement which was later named “Fermat’s Last Theorem” in the margins of a book; within the book’s margin he wrote that he had a proof for his theorem, but it was too long to fit in the margin.
Mathematicians were of course intrigued by this and spent years trying to prove Fermat’s Last Theorem. It wasn’t until 1994, after over 350 years of persistent mathematicians’ work, that Andrew J. Wiles finally published the first successful proof.
