The First Algorithm in the World

“The Euclidean algorithm is the granddaddy of all algorithms, because it is the oldest nontrivial algorithm that has survived to the present day.” – Donald Knut

What is the story about?

How to find the maximum tile side size for a rectangle floor, so that you don’t need to cut the tiles? More seriously, the Euclidean algorithm is an efficient method for computing the greatest common divisor of two numbers.
It is named after the ancient Greek mathematician Euclid, who first described it in Euclid’s Elements (c. 300 BC).
It is an example of an algorithm, a step-by-step procedure for performing a calculation according to well-defined rules, and is one of the oldest numerical algorithms in common use.

Mr Barton’s Web Whizz Video on A+ Click Math

“I love NRICH, & whilst it remains my number one stop for rich maths puzzles & problems, this website might just be number two. There are literally 100s of puzzle & problems for students to solve. They are beautifully laid out on the page, making them absolutely ideal to project on the board to use as starter activities or extension work. I also suggest using them in the computer room as the website keeps a handy record of students’ progress through a series of puzzles. With the development of students creative thinking & problem solving growing in importance, this website is a must!” – Craig Barton
