The Story of Numbers

Today we took a look at the history of numbers!  We traced numbers from the notches on cave walls from 30,000 BCE to the Arabic-inspired numbers we use today.  After creating a timeline of major events in the history of numbers, we created personal timelines that charted math milestones in our own lives.  I wonder what your math future has in store?
