dc.description.abstract This paper examines the mathematical work of the French bishop, Nicole Oresme (c. 1323–1382), and his contributions towards the development of the concept of graphing functions and approaches to investigating infinite series. The historical importance and pedagogical value of his work will be considered in the context of an undergraduate course on the history of calculus. en_US
