    Is there only one path to mathematics, or can we find different ways to explore the world around us? Throughout history, in different times and in different cultures, human creativity has found countless ways to investigate the same realities. Join Glen Van Brummelen, Professor of Mathematics, Quest University, as we delve into several ancient ways of thinking in geometry, all but forgotten today. Ancient Chinese and Greek sages will help us realize that we really can change the way that we see!
