from scientists, historians, anthropologists, and others. T he first mathematics house in Iran was established in Isfahan in 1999 to inform the young students in this great historical and cultural city about the history, the beauty, the importance, and the applications of mathematics. It did this by familiarizing these young people with various mathematical sciences beyond the classroom, through observations, collaborations, and so forth, including teamwork with their teachers or other scholars… Expand

Is The Mystery of Morley’s Trisector Theorem Resolved?
In this paper we discuss with some reasons why the above possible mystery in the title is resolved. In particular, we prove Morley’s Theorem is, in fact, a natural consequence of an overlooked simpleExpand


The Persian Tarof in Mathematics
I was prevailed upon by my colleague’s recent brief proof of the AM-GM inequality in [1], to give some comments on this proof. In my opinion this proof should not just be considered as another simpleExpand
The lehmus inequality
AbstractThe cubic polynomial $$\Gamma = abc - (b + c - a)(c + a - b)(a + b - c) = \Sigma a^3 - \Sigma b^2 c + 3abc$$ has been found to arise in two entirely different contexts, both somewhat relatedExpand
One-Line Proof of the AM-GM Inequality
