The Study of Numbers, Quantity, and Space


This insightful guide to the history and basic concepts of mathematics reveals how math concepts helped to shape society – from the basic counting and units of measurement that facilitated commerce to the kind of surveying techniques and geometry that helped build the Egyptian pyramids.A chronological account of advancements in mathematics ranges Aristotle and al-Khwarizmi (who first used the term "algebra") to high-speed computers and their impact upon the teaching and understanding of mathematics. Readers will also find out how much of ancient arithmetic – like the 60 minute hour – is still part of our everyday life.
