Going off yesterdays post, if you are not comfortable using iPads in the classroom, or your school does not offer iPads in the classroom. You can still use historical math events in your classroom.
Have your students use real math history and create historical fiction mini-books where their creativity and imagination can grow. Other science-fiction writers have done this and they have become wildly popular with science fiction fans. Logicomix is a great example and use it as template for the students to write or draw for a historical perspective.
