    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 2000 B.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 1700 B.C. Systems of linear equations were studied in the context of solving number problems. The basic of mathematics was inhe...

  • Development Of Many Other Branches Of Mathematics
    1,201 words
    Before the time of recorded history, prehistoric people learned to count such things as the animals in their herds and flocks. They probably first used their fingers or pebbles to help keep track of small numbers. They learned to use the length of their hands and arms and other standards of measure. And they learned to use regular shapes when they molded pottery and chipped stone arrowheads. Since the prehistoric times, mathematics has come a long way. In this essay, I will try to sum up the dev...
  • Physical Chemistry

    Chemistry is the study of the nature, properties, and composition of matter, and how these undergo changes. There different kinds of chemistry which are organic chemistry, Biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, theoretical chemistry, analytical chemistry.

Biochemists concern themselves with the chemistry of the l...
  • Major Greek Progress In Mathematics
    2,204 words
    Mathematics starts with counting. It is not reasonable, however, to suggest that early counting was mathematics. Only when some record of the counting was kept and, therefore, some representation of numbers occurred can mathematics be said to have started. In Babylonia mathematics developed from 2000 BC. Earlier a place value notation number system had evolved over a lengthy period with a number base of 60. It allowed arbitrarily large numbers and fractions to be represented and so proved to be ...
  • Mathematics At Mit
    284 words
    The true universal human language is not punctuated by accents or vowel intonations; it does not spring from any particular continent; it rises above ink on paper, scratches on the earth or daubs of paint on the wall of a cave. No, I am a firm believer that the true universal human language is composed of numbers. For while numerical characters may vary across the globe, the logic they convey transcends borders, localities, and customs. The 'language' of numbers flows from the inherent human cap...

  • Germain's Lifelong Study Of Mathematics
    795 words
    All things considered, she was probably the most profoundly intellectual woman that France has ever produced. And yet, strange as it may seem, when the state official came to make out her death certificate, he designated her as a "rent i re-annuitant" (a single woman with no profession) - not as a "math maticienne". Nor is this all. When the Eiffel Tower was erected, there was inscribed on this lofty structure the names of seventy-two savants. But one will not find in this list the name of that ...
  • Chinese And American Elementary Mathematics Teachers
    583 words
    Mathematics is an essential language used in science to quantitatively describe natural and social phenomena and to expand systematic thinking.
