Introduction 

 Galileo Galilei  
Mathematics is a subject
which is as old as Human Civilization. The origin of mathematics accompanied
the evolution of social systems. In past many social needs require calculation
and numbers. Conversely, the calculation of numbers enables more complex
relations and interactions between people. The Early Step in the Development
of Mathematics in the form of symbols, counting, and number system enables
the development of Human Civilization and makes the other activities possible
in the society. The need to Study the History of Mathematics is because
of its richness in astonishing breakthroughs, false starts, misattributions,
confusions and deadends. This history gives a narrative and human context
which adds colour and context to the discipline. Indeed, the inclusion
of historical modules caused positive changes in mathematical communication,
student achievement and aptitude.
