Why do we call it Algebra?
Asking the question "Why do we call it Algebra?" takes us on a journey that embraces diversity and inclusiveness, and it does so just in the process of teaching algebra. To answer our question we enter the city of Baghdad in the year 820 and find a diverse population, living in relative harmony, and collaborating on projects in mathematics and science that have benefited the rest of the world ever since. As we follow the projects from Baghdad to Spain, and then into Europe, we see a picture of the Middle East that is different from the one we see in the media today. The story embraces diversity. We find people and cultures that we identify with, giving us and our students a new, more inclusive, perspective on the world we live in today. Lots of good content for your online courses.
