You set a great example of keeping an open mind! Why? Unlike a light bulb or a computer, mathematics isn't really an invention. How come I did not learn who actually created math it's very confusing, I don't know but all I know is I have a sa about math and who invented math, Wow!I really really can't believe now for what I learn,for me all of them created the math. Put yourself in a caveman's shoes for just a little bit. Great website. Hi, Parsa and Doni! math discovered, Thank YOU for visiting Wonderopolis and learning with us! They used mathematics in order to build Houses, Temples and Pyramids. I found these facts interesting to read and I also learnt a lot from it too. mathematics discovered. Most experts agree that it was around this time (2,500 years ago) in ancient Greece that mathematics first became an organized science. There’s also James Maxwell that founded about the concept of electromagnetic waves which Marconi harness the idea that leads to having the era of wireless communication. Those that marvel at the ubiquity of mathematical applications have perhaps been seduced by an overstatement of their successes. Instead, people worked together to create solutions and developed math concepts. But would that really be possible…even if time travel existed? :D, We're glad you learned some new things about the discovery of math today, Wonder Friend Nathan. Learn how your comment data is processed. We hope this Wonder is helpful! Up for a challenge? Since that time, mathematical discoveries have spurred other mathematicians and scientists to build upon the work of others, constantly expanding our understanding of mathematics and its relation to the world around us. We appreciate you letting us know your opinion. No one can know for sure, but we can use our imaginations to think about how mathematics might have gotten its start. The reason we can even ask the question “is mathematics invented, or discovered?” is because of the consistency of mathematics. Today I am going to Sandusky to a place called Cedar Point, a.k.a the roller coaster capital of the world, for the first time this year. Do they remember any special stories from when they first learned about the history of certain mathematical discoveries? We appreciate you WONDERing with us. Glad to help, Parth! Accessed 24 Sept. 2017. Welcome, KC! I never knew that mathematics was actually discovered and not invented! Thanks for commenting! AT ALL. What does he or she find interesting about the origins of mathematics? please can you teach me who invented maths? You'll have to stop back by and let us know what you think of tomorrow's Wonder. But these equations could be the explanation to everything even to the most natural phenomena on this earth, so is math just merely discovered? One thing I learned from the article is that math is a discovery and not an invention. It may seem hard but it is almost like everyday life. You can find lots of information at the library and online! We're glad you're extending the Wonder by taking the quiz. So that’s how the equation d=t2 is derived. The oldest math dates back more than 4,000 years ago! We encourage you to keep learning about Pythagoras at your library and online! Early learning eventually led to more advanced fields of mathematics, such as algebra, geometry, calculus, and trigonometry! Math is a very fascinating subject, even if it is sometimes difficult to understand. Mathematics is not discovered, it is invented. That means you'd need to count them. :). :D, We think it is WONDERful that you learned so much from today's Wonder about math, Isai! You never know when your math teacher might be able to provide some unique insight into the history of the subject they teach. We'd love to hear about any WONDERing you do today! Don’t miss our special deals, gifts and promotions. :), Hi, WONDER Friend! If you want to keep the learning from today's Wonder of the Day adding up, grab a few friends or family members and explore the mathematical activities below: katelyn, Kevin and Elisha from AL for contributing questions about today’s Wonder topic! It's really more of a discovery. While we may not have given you the answer you were hoping for, we did enjoy starting the conversation of WONDERing about math.
