I am currently taking a history of mathematics course and am wanting to "sketch" the history of a mathematical topic at an undergraduate level. The sketch must tell a story of some idea, process, method, or problem and then demonstrate how mathematics was applied. So, I am thinking maybe of choosing a topic about the history solving simultaneous equations or maybe a history of logarithms. I have come here to ask if anyone has any suggestions, talking points, research, or sources to help aid me in my paper.
