Brahmagupta and His Significant Discovery Brahmagupta was born in 598 in Rajasthan, India and he was an Indian astronomer that may not get all the credit he deserves. Being an orthodox Hindu, he was very interested in the Hindu yuga system that focused on the measurement of the ages of mankind. Even though he mostly devoted his time to Indian astronomy, Brahmagupta when writing his books implemented a great amount of mathematics. This was seen especially in his most famous work Brahmasphutasiddhanta where he talked about mathematics in chapters twelve through eighteen. The interest in math sparked a discovery that is arguably the most important in the evolution of all mathematics that is even used in today’s twenty-first century. It is fascinating to think it was thought of back in the seventh century. He tackled many different mathematical ideas especially with coming up with a more accurate value for pi; however, that wasn’t as important as his great discovery on the development of zero and negative numbers.…
Abstract: This paper reveals the birth of mathematics. Representing quantities in some way is considered the first invention of mathematics. We use mathematics every day in one way or another. Sometimes we even use mathematics unconsciously, as in the case of filing a cup of water for cooking. The measure cup is readily available to us and all we have to do is fill it out, but who started this type of measurement? How old is mathematics? Specifically, how old is counting? When was representing…
Elementary American Indian Students' Math Achievement with Inquiry-Based Mathematics and Games” describes a 2008-2009 ethnographic case study of four fifth grade classrooms with varying levels of Native American student enrollment (Stone & Hamann, 2012). Dr. McMillan (2016) refers to ethnography as “the quintessential qualitative approach” (p.312). Stone contends that it remains necessary to “account for what was actually happening with American Indian and other children in these classrooms”…
minus, division, multiplication, etc. These symbols create a meaning of the equation and the product of an equation. Although, math can only be used to such an extent as a language. Math helps you let exchange information, but you can’t express emotions or thoroughly communicate through the usage of math. Math is limited to be used as a language, you can mostly use math to exchange information that is numerical related. Math lets you use variable to replace the words but you can’t always use…
The two most intertwined civilizations in history is Islam and the west. In fourth century B.C. Alexander the great conquered Asia Minor and founded Alexandria. He was able to migrate Greek philosophy and science into that part of the world. Muslim philosophy was a major influence on western thought. On the subject of astronomy Muslims used the Greek tradition. They also used the knowledge from the Persians and Indians. From the late ninth century to the twelfth the Islamic influence on Western…
My High School Mathematics Class Descriptions I am one of the three mathematics teachers at Rocky Boy High School, which is located on the Rocky Boy Indian Reservation in Montana. Since this school is located on a reservation, 99% of my students are Native American. The mathematic classes I teach at the high school are one section of Advanced Mathematics, two sections of Algebra 1, two sections of high school Pre-Algebra, and one section of eighth grade Pre-Algebra. The other two mathematic…
RAMANUJAN’S CONTRIUTION IN MATHEMATICS: Ramanujan’s main contribution in mathematics discusses on mainly in the analytic also game theory and infinite series. He made many in depth analytics in order for the aim to solve various mathematical problems by bringing to light new and novel ideas that gave impetus to progress of game theory. He was such a mathematical genius that he discovered his own theorems of different kinds. Ramanujan stands upright most of the time, he is one of the greatest…
I am a long-time teacher of Belle Chasse Primary School. I am writing to you concerning your child, Wind-Wolf’s education. I understand that you have voiced concerns over my choice of labeling Wind-Wolf a slow-learner. However, I want to assure you that my major concern is Wind-Wolf’s education and comprehension of the material. After thoroughly reading your letter reading your letter concerning Wind-Wolf, I want you to know that I am still worried about Wind-Wolf’s progress for several…
evening discussion. “Do you think there is some kind of contradiction involved in claiming that God is infinite? After all, we assert that God transcends the material world he created. God is not the existents he created, which is how we 'define ' his infinite nature. God is not you, he is not me, nor is he the moon, planets, stars, nor the universe itself. Yet by making that statement, are we not limiting God? Isn 't that the very essence of being finite?—you are not something else that…
