Mathematics is not a linear science! Cultures
all over the world have made important discoveries. As explorers traveled the world,
they brought to their own countries the advancements in math and sciences
they found in the various places they visited.
Textbooks tell us a lot about the Greeks and the Europeans and their marvelous
contributions; now your job is to find out what other peoples developed through
the years. As you learn some mathematical facts from a variety of cultures,
try to decide which you think are the most interesting and important. This
may be the basis for your presentation project!
