Minds of Modern Mathematics, or how math has impacted our progress

Anyone who is fond of mathematics or knows how mathematicians have been able to contribute and modify the world we live in thanks to their knowledge will marvel at this application called Minds of Modern Mathematics. Based in part on content already on display at the 1961 exhibition called Mathematica, sponsored by IBM, in the application we can access a digital recreation of 1000 years of content to observe how mathematics has influenced human progress, in terms of art, culture, architecture or science.

We can access the content in various ways, both taking a chronological tour of history that highlights the most relevant moments, making a chronological view in 3D mode, accessing biographies of the most important mathematicians with portraits and achievements included, and most unstable The application is the Artifact Collection, a collection of 495 objects / inventions at high resolution with the relevant explanation. We can also access nine educational films, all of them on topics related to the world of mathematics.

In summary, a free application in iTunes to lose yourself in it for a few good hours whenever we are attracted to the subject, of course.
