# Short essay on Carl Friedrich Gauss (algebra and writing related)

**Question description**

Carl Friedrich Gauss, known as the Prince of Mathematics and Germany's greatest Mathematician, was solving mathematical problems at an early age. During your research for this Discussion Board forum you will read how, at age three, he corrected his father when the elder was figuring out a payroll problem. There was also the famous incident in primary school, when his teacher gave him the challenge to add the integers, 1 to 100, progressively. Within a few minutes, he had an answer by using pairwise addition. And of course, you have already discovered he is responsible for the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra.

The goal of this discussion is to become appreciative and gain an accumulated awareness of a great mathematician/physics/genius and how he really mattered in Western scientific progress.

- Research the algebraic and scientific contributions by Gauss.
- Identify two significant accomplishments and/or other famous people in science or mathematics that he mentored.
- In a short summary of 300-500 words, explain specifically how the accomplishments you describe are used or influence us in the current century.
- All of the summaries should be different since Gauss has contributed so much.
- Be sure to make appropriate APA citations when quoting or listing your sources.
