Front Panel Illustrated by Phillip Heath Wood and Milt Adam. This is a paper on ancient Egyptian mathematics. The geometry of pyramids is thoroughly discussed, an original translation of a section of the Moscow Papyrus is given, and the structure of the earlier Pyramid of Khufu (The Great Pyramid) is shown. In particular, it is conclusively demonstrated that the ancient Egyptians had a more than elementary understanding of quantitative science. This paper was given to Sigma Xi of Orange County in May, 2001.
