Symbols

Italy

Created Roman Numerals.

Roman Numerals are when the numbers look like letters.

Like when V=5.

Fibonacci, a man born in Italy, raised in West Africa, brought the Arabic numeration system to Europe, which is the smae numeration system we study today.

Egypt

In Egypt the decimal numeric system was developed. This system was developed based on our own 10 fingers!

They have their own numeration system.

They also developed their own counting system using symbols. Written numbers were units, a heel bone system for tens, a coil of rope for hundereds, and a lotus flower for thousands.

Greece

Greece has a lot of people who helped start mathematics, such as

Thales

,

Pythagoras

, and

Euclid

.

Thales created the right triangle

Pthagoras has made something called the

Pythagorean Theorem

, it's a²+b²=c².

Euclid created Euclidean geometry.

Influences

The two main influnces on Rome were Greece and Egypt.

People credited all the knowledge of geometry to Greece, although geometry was originally developed in Egpyt then passed onto Greece.

What Careers Require Algebra/Geometry?

Transportation Industry:

They use geometry to determine the angles involved in each Plane's flight path.

Construction industry:

Use geometry to make important calculations.

**Fun Fact:**

The Geometry that we study today

is what the famous mathameticion

Euclid discovered and wrote about.

He had 13 giant files filled with

mathematical theories.

Geometry

Algebra

Cooking:

Assists chefs in measuring the amount of each ingredient they need

Fitness:

To determine how much fat someone has and how much fat needs to be lost

Architecture:

To convert the inch or fraction to feet or yards so that the drawing has the correct proportions

Time and Calendars

Astronomy

was one of the first ways that time was measured. They used the sun, the moon, and the stars to measure time.

Egyptians

were the first to develop a

calendar

, using both Astronomy and Astrology.

The first people to have a

24 four hour

day were the

Egyptians

, but

The

Babylonians

were the first to use the

60 minute hour

. The seconds came later, around the year 1000.

Babylonians, Greeks, and Indians were all influenced by Egyptian mathematics.

Their theories have been passed onto the Greeks, helping the people from the Hellenistic time period develop more advanced theories of mathematics. Such as geometry, which led to Euclidean Geometry.

Chinese and Babylonians have the same number system

Also the same technical expressions

In both Babylon and China sets of linear equations were solved by eliminating one unknown after the other.

What are some similarities between the early Chinese and Babylonians?

Mesopotamia

In Mesopotamia they created a pictograph.

They helped develope arithmetic and geometric systems.

Mesopotamia developed something the other countries did not, which is a symbol for the number 0.

They developed PI and the circumfrence of a circle.

India

In India the mathematics they created were highly more advanced than others.

They created a way to write numbers starting with the tens and moving all the way to the trillions.

They also provided of evidence of helping to create arithmetic operations.

Before Pythagoras, a texted called "Sulva Sutras" listed several parts of the Pythagorean Theorem.

China

China created a numeration system, where they used bamboo rods arranged to represent the number 1 to 9.

Chinese develpoed the abacus, but it was told that the abacus was developed elsewhere long before Chinese developed it.

3,000 B.C.

Egyptians used

advanced mathematics

such as algebra, arithmetic,

and geometry.

1,900 - 1680 B.C.

Babylonians developed

PI and the circumfrence

of a circle

1100 B.C.

Chinese mathematics

developed concepts

such as negative numbers,

decimals, algebra, and geometry.

700 B.C.

Greek mathematics

developed such as

the Pythagorean Theorem,

and Euclidean Geometry.

1,000 B.C.

Hindu numeric

sytem was

developed.

Moving Towards Modern Times

16th Century

symbols for

addition and

subtraction

were developed.

1557

Equal sign

was developed

Mathematics

helped

develop

computers.

7th Century

Mathematics

Mohammed al- Khwarizmi developed "Al Jabr" or as we call it, Algebra.

Al- Khwarizmi wrote a book all about algebraic thinking, theories, and epressions.

Al-Khwarizmi wrote all his expressions in full sentences because there were no symbols back then.

From 700-1200 AD, there were many contibutions to mathematics in the Arab world.

Before symbols were

developed, people had to

write equations in full

sentences.

Impacts

With time and calendears

on their hands, civilization

could predict when events

such as floods would happen.
