Center for History of Mathematics


“Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe.”

- 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 dead-ends. 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.
