Book Description:
Arithmetic, math, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus and statistics are all part of the modern world, yet so few of us know where these fields of study originated. In this book, the lives and discoveries of various mathematicians will be explored and examined, so as to provide some insight into various mathematical functions and operations. (Nova)
