The History of Math

The history of math has become an important study, from ancient to modern times it has

been fundamental to advances in science, engineering, and philosophy. Mathematics started

with counting. In Babylonia mathematics developed from 2000B.C. A place value notation

system had evolved over a lengthy time with a number base of 60. Number problems were

studied from at least 1700B.C. Systems of linear equations were studied in the context of

solving number problems. The basic of mathematics was inherited by the Greeks and

independent by the Greeks beg the major Greek progress in mathematics was from 300 BC to

200 AD. After this time progress continued in Islamic countries Unlike the Babylonians,

the Egyptians did not develop fully their understanding of mathematics. Instead, they

concerned themselves with practical applications of mathematics. Mathematics flourished in

particular in Iran, Syria and India from 450B.C. Major progress in mathematics in Europe

began again at the beginning of the 16th Century. The 17th Century saw Napier, Briggs and

others greatly extend the power of mathematics as a calculator science with his discovery

of logarithms. Cavalieri made progress towards the calculus with his infinitesimal methods

and Descartes added the power of algebraic methods to geometry. Euclid, who lived around

300 BC in Alexandria, first stated his five postulates in his book The Elements that forms

the base for all of his later Abu Abd-Allah ibn Musa al'Khwarizmi, was born about AD 790

near Baghdad, and died about 850. His most contribution was algebra. Many say that the

Babylonians first developed systems of quadratic equations, the Babylonians had no concept

of an equation. The history of Pi encompasses many centuries. From the Babylonians, are

3.1415. Another is from the Egyptians, 3 1/8 or 3.125, which could be concluded to
