费马大定理 Fermat’s Last Theorem

Intriguing review (Chinese) of FLT by a non-mathematician. He aims to convey the beauty of Mathematics to students, who unfortunately treat Math as a tool to pass exams from PSLE, O and A level, university math course, then ditch Math upon graduation. Math is the beauty of the universe.
