Background

Refer to pg 3 of your Lecture Notes 01 
Gerolamo Cardano (24th September 1501 -21st September 1576) was an Italian Renaissance Mathematician, physician, astrologer and gambler. He wrote more than 200 works on medicine, mathematics, physics, philosophy, religion, and music. His gambling led him to formulate elementary rules in probability, making him one of the founders of the field.

Today Gerolamo Cardano is best known for his achievements in Algebra.

Find out what he has done and share your findings with your classmates.
