HOW ISLAMIC MATH CONTIRBUTED TO MAKING THE MIDDLE-EAST THE CRADLE OF CILIZATION.
People form nearly every culture of the world have contributed to developing numerous techniques of calculating complex mathematical problems by incorporating their own fragments of wisdom and knowledge of the concepts of math.
Their ideas that gradually spread from one culture to another eventually merged together and led to the development of the one predominant and internationally form of math that we use throughout the world today.
However, looking back on the history of math, it is clear that the Islamic Empire was one of the most significant and influential in making new and important contributions to math that eventually led to create, essentially, the very foundation of mathematical operations and numbers. This fact has been further established by recent research which distinctly acknowledges that the formerly thought brilliant and innovative ideas and notations of Europeans mathematics that originated in the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries, were, in fact, initially established by the Islamic Empire approximately close to an entire four centuries prior to them. Thus, this shows us the very extent of the liability for which we are indebted to Islamic/Arabic math as, although many Islamic ideas were borrowed from other cultures, in many respects the style of approach of math that is studied by us today is far more interrelated to that of the Islamic contributions in comparison to those of the Greeks, Babylonians, Sumerians, and even the Indians.
These important arithmetic discoveries of Islam consisted of concepts such as Algebra, Decimal numbers and fractions as well as the maximum contribution to the very conception of modern day numbers itself. These findings of the Arabic’s swayed us to an era of mathematical ingenuity that was to go on for many years that followed.
When looking back, it all comes down the execution and accomplishments of...
