### Abstract:

Web Feet summary: Fermat was a 17th century mathematician who believed he had created a theorem that could not be proved. This was true until the most famous math problem caught the interest of two mathematicians, Sophie Germain and Andrew Wiles. Germain was a woman who lived in the 18th century. In order to study mathematics, she assumed the identity of a man. Wiles is a modern-day mathematician who finally solved the problem 350 years later after spending seven years working on it. At this site, visitors will learn more about Germain and Wiles and their work on Fermat's Last Theorem. Also included are a teacher's guide, links to other mathematical sites, and an interactive feature that pertains to the Pythagorean theorem, which is related to Fermat's theorem.
