Pavla Rosenstein, a PhD student in Assyriology at Yale and a social media and outreach assistant at the Yale Babylonian Collection, shares the history of mathematics in ancient Mesopotamia.  Explore the cuneiform tablets held at the Yale Babylonian Collection, from archaic accounting tablets from fourth millennium BCE Uruk all the way to complex astronomical tablets used during the Neo-Babylonian empire in the first millennium BCE.  The talk will be followed by a Q&A session and an informal discussion.

Hosted by MoMath's 2020-2021 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics and Rutgers math professor Alex Kontorovich.
