Title: The MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive
Url: https://mathshistory.st-andrews.ac.uk/
Publisher: University of St. Andrews
Description: Created and maintained by John J. O'Connor and Edmund F. Robertson of the University of St. Andrews, this site contains a cornucopia of materials related to the history of mathematics and well-known mathematicians through the ages. Users can start by clicking on the biography index and diving right into short biographies of noted mathematicians arranged alphabetically and chronologically. Moving on, the history topics index provides brief overviews of mathematics in the Indian, Mayan, Arabic, and Babylonian cultures. Additionally, this same area provides access to pieces on the history of algebra, analysis, mathematical physics, and number theory. Visitors should not miss the "Famous Curves" index either, as those who have wondered about Pascal's Limacon, Newton's Trident, or the Witch of Agnesi will wonder no longer after reading up on these notable curves.
