Description

When people hear the word mathematics, some think numbers and others think solving for x and y. In all truth, the field of mathematics is more than numbers and equations. Mathematics was founded based off the principle of counting in 50,000 B.C.E. Mathematical contributions and ideas increased from the Babylonian Empire in 2000 BC to the 18th century, where mathematicians and philosophers developed ideas in algebra, geometry and calculus.
