TRansforming Instruction in Undergraduate Mathematics via Primary Historical Sources (TRIUMPHS)

There are two ways to get involved right now - see below to apply for the Fall Workshop or to be a Fall Site-tester!

  • TRIUMPHS Site-testing (fall application deadline June 15)
    Are you interested in trying a primary source project in your classroom? Would you like to make money doing so? Then consider becoming a site-tester! See what's available for testing in Fall 2018 at
  • TRIUMPHS Workshop
    We will be hosting a workshop which provides training in the use of primary historical sources in the classroom. The workshop will take place at the University of Colorado Denver on September 13-15, 2018. For more information, see the Workshop flyer.

    The TRIUMPHS project creates materials for use in the undergraduate mathematics clasroom 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
    while PSPs from the grandparent grant can be found here.

    Interested in this work around the world? Go to ESU-8! We're presenting there! More information can be found at the ESU-8 website.
