An Interesting Webinar for Math & History Teachers

Learn Central is a great place for teachers to find free and interesting professional development webinars. This week's email from Learn Central alerted me to a webinar that I think will be interesting for both mathematics and history teachers. On Wednesday, July 21 at 6:30pm PST Learn Central will be hosting a webinar titled Egyptian Math. According the published agenda Egyptian Math will explore the relationship between Egyptians and the development of modern mathematics. The webinar will also discuss the opportunities Egyptian math provides for teaching mathematics in 2010.

Applications for Education
From the description and agenda it sounds like the Egyptian Math webinar could be a great opportunity for mathematics and history teachers to think about ways in which they can create cross-curricula lesson plans.
