Nicole Oresme was a great mathematician from the 14th century who made significant contributions to the field of mathematics. One of his notable works was on the concept of infinity, where he challenged the traditional views of mathematics at the time.

Oresme was also known for his work in geometry, particularly in the study of shapes and measurement. He introduced new ideas about the nature of parallel lines and made valuable contributions to the understanding of proportions and ratios.

In addition, Oresme was one of the pioneers in the use of graphs and diagrams to explain mathematical concepts, making complex ideas more accessible and easier to understand for students. His innovative approach to teaching mathematics continues to influence education today.

Overall, Nicole Oresme was a brilliant mathematician whose work laid the foundation for many modern mathematical ideas that school students can appreciate and learn from.
