Articulation Resources

This Year's Featured Mathematician

The year 2021 is the 300th anniversary of the birth of Arthur Cayley (1821-1895). There is an article in the most recent Focus (MAA) that highlights the need for more matrix algebra and linear algebra in the first two years of university. (Thanks, Leo!)

See the MacTutor History of Math archive for more information about Arthur Cayley and his contributions, and other historical figures in mathematics.
