This NOVA web site describes the recent discovery of the Archimedes palimpsest, a tenth-century copy of an ancient Greek manuscript, and examines the meaning of infinity. It offers students the opportunity to learn about mathematics history and to see how the understanding of infinity has developed through the centuries. The site contains articles, an interview, a brief video, and two online interactive activities. One activity allows the student to see how modern technology is used to read ancient manuscripts. The other activity demonstrates the Archimedes' geometric approach to estimating the number pi. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
