This paper is the result of a new collaboration between the language departments and the mathematics department at Wittenberg University called Culture and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC). This program allows students enrolled in any subject to obtain language credit by adding a project with a significant language component to the class. As such, the authors would like to express their great thanks to Professor Tim Wilkerson for all his help with these translations. We would also like to thank the referees for their helpful suggestions that greatly improved this paper.
