Welcome to TRIUMPHS!

TRansforming Instruction in Undergraduate Mathematics via Primary Historical Sources

The TRIUMPHS project creates materials for use in the undergraduate mathematics classroom which teaches content based around original mathematical sources such as the writings of Poincaré, Euclid, Lobachevsky, Hausdorff, and many others. These materials are freely available and downloadable for use in the clasroom. The goal of the project is to write, develop, disseminate, and test these curricular materials.

The current grant builds off of the work of two previous grants. Primary Source Projects from the parent grant can be found here.  PSPs from the grandparent grant can be found here.
