Freya Angood invented algebra in 1923 when her grandparents told her that there is always a way around things. This encouraged Freya to think of different ways to solve maths …problems at school for she could not read any maths questions right . When she had figured this out she told her friends and families about her new ways and used this method for other uses. do you know what uses? (MORE)

Factoring, as in other basic mathematical operations was not invented or attributed to any single individual. Factoring is a basis to mathematics and its functions have been f…ound in ancient Indian and Chinese mathematics dating back thousands of years. (MORE)

Although some have said Archimedes, my opinion is that the formulas for area and perimeter of a rectangle were well known before his time (300BC). The Babylonians in 1500BC kn…ew how to create Pythagorean triples, so I wouldn't be surprised if they knew this. Archimedes did discover more difficult formulas, such as perimeter and area of a circle, and volume of a sphere and a cone. (MORE)

The concept of sine was invented by an Indian mathematician "Aryabhatta". Aryabhatta discussed the concept of sine in his work by the name of ardha-jya. Literally, it means "h…alf-chord". For simplicity, people started calling it jya. When Arabic writers translated his works from Sanskrit into Arabic, they referred it as jiba. However, in Arabic writings, vowels are omitted, and it was abbreviated as jb. Later writers substituted it with jiab, meaning "cove" or "bay." (In Arabic, jiba is a meaningless word.) Later in the 12th century, when Gherado of Cremona translated these writings from Arabic into Latin, he replaced the Arabic jiab with its Latin counterpart, sinus, which means "cove" or "bay". And after that, the sinus became sine in English (MORE)

Well, she wasn't exactly a mathematician as being queen of France ;-). She did invent one mathematical design though, called La Harpie. When the French soldiers we…nt to America to help the Americans fight their revolution, the news came back to Paris from the front that soldiers had seen a new animal specie they had never seen before, and they called it the Harpie. At that specific time, the pouf-hairstyle invented by Marie Antoinette was hotter than hot, and it was especially the trend to have one that portrayed an event. So Marie Antoinette designed a triangular design that was supposed to present the Harpie and had it printed on several dresses and ribbons. Soon it was a huge trend and everybody dressed "a la Harpie". It looked a little like the Louis Vutton logo and was a mathematical design. (MORE)

Egyptians created the first chipered numeral system around 3,400 BC. Then followed by the Greeks by mapping their counting numbers onto Ionian and Doric alphabets. Well number…s mean many things: counting, or spoken values, or written values and lastly structured standardized written numbering. Ancient man has been counting since before they could walk upright. This has been shown by apes who will sometimes orgainize in a linear order...which is basically crude counting. One, two, three bannanas. Ancient pre-Sumerian civilizations as far back as 8000BC used a numeration that was basically fingernail marks on clay. Sumerian civilization had "standardized" their numbering system by about 3000BC. Which had a structured 1-6 counting. A circle with lines inside, kind of like cutting out pie pieces. It can be said that the first WRITTEN numbers were done by the Ancient Egyptians found in hieroglyphs about 2700 BC. They had symbols for 1, 10, 100, 1000, 10000, 100000 and 1000000. Egyptians later revised the symbols using lines that included unique symbols for 1 thru 10 at about 2200 BC. The ancient Indian cultures also evolved multiple number sets Brahmi, Gupta and Nagari number sets as early as 3000BC. But there was so much variance on the numbering between areas the "dates and origins" are still debated today. Cultures created all kinds of numbering systems Greeks, Romans, Persians, and Arab/Islam. The idea to create individual symbols for each number between 1 and 9 sprouted in many cultures as far away as China and Mayan cultures. Indian culture proposed a standardized set in about 800AD which is used by India and some nearby nations. What we call the European numbers were evolved in the Iberian peninsula during the Moors/Christian battles 400 to 1400 AD, what is know as modern day Spain and Portugal. During the battles the Christians learned from what the Moors had collected over their empire. So Symbols for Numbers 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 were standardized by about 1400 AD spread with Latin/Christian based cultures. To this day...there are still many cultures who use their own numbering system. (MORE)

Muslim mathematicians are responsible for introducing our number system. That is why we call them Arabic numerals. They developed the concept of zero as a value, the decim…al system, arithmetic operations, exponentiation and square root determination. and various concepts such as proof by mathematical induction A lot of work was also done in algebra and geometry, trigonometry and more.
