Chesterton and Mathematics: The Three Riders of Apocalypse (Introduction to Systems of Linear Equations, Workshop).
Ramirez, Rene; Flores, Homero
This paper takes G.K. Chesterton's short story, "The Three Horsemen of Apocalypse," as a motivating introduction to the study of linear equations systems, as well as a review of the concept of linear function. The guide has three objectives: (1) to illustrate how to use non-mathematical sources to create math problems; (2) to use the graphing calculator (TI-92) to go from one representation of the problem to another; and (3) to suggest an activity which reviews the linear function and systems of linear equations.
