Transcript of The Evolution of Mathematics.

How did Greece improve on the early Egyptians concepts of math?
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.
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 has a lot of people who helped start mathematics, such as
, and
Thales created the right triangle
Pthagoras has made something called the
Pythagorean Theorem
, it's a²+b²=c².
Euclid created Euclidean geometry.
The Evolution of Mathematics
By: Jude Mohammed

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.

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

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?
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.
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 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.

7th Century
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
