Diophantine was a great mathematician who studied and wrote about problems with two or more unknowns in which the solutions are limited to whole numbers. A sample of a Diophantine problem is: If twice Betty s age in years plus Joe s age in years equals seven, how old are Betty and Joe? Solve this problem and then explain why it falls within the category of Diophantine Equations.
Research Diophantine equations in depth and use the information gathered to help present these types of problems to a group of students.
Prepare a lesson plan that includes the grade level, length of the lesson, materials, procedure, evaluation/assessment, and extension. Be sure to include a comprehensive self-evaluation of the lesson.
