World Maths Day
Math book (Babylon, about 2000 BC)
(If you’re American, the rest of the English-speaking world calls the subject “Maths” – only Americans say “Math class”)
Today is world maths day, so I thought I’d post some links:
In addition to maths articles, we also have a lot on the history of math:
Early art from Blombos Cave, South Africa (ca. 80,000 BC)
Tapestry of “Arithmetic” from Belgium in the 1600s. The spirit of Arithmetic is showing men how to use Arabic numbers.
An Islamic astrolabe (832 AD)
