history of algebra
The history of Algebra begins in Egypt, Babylon, and India. Although it was in these areas that the roots of Algebra began, the message and teachings of it would eventually spread throughout the world. The Arabs first practiced this mathematical form, and they are given credit for spreading the teachings of Algebra to the world. It was they who brought Algebra from Egypt, Babylon, and India, and spread it to Europe and, eventually, the world. (1)The history of algebra itself is broken into several sub-categories, and has been expanded upon by several hundred of the world's greatest mathematicians. Some of the sub-categories include the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, abstract linear spaces, as well as quadratic, cubic and quartic equations. Not only can Algebra be divided into sub-categories as subjects, but the groups that studied, or developed them can also categorize them. Egyptian Algebra, Babylonian Algebra, Greek Geometric Algebra, Diophantine Algebra, Hindu Algebra, Arabic Algebra, European Algebra since 1500, and modern Algebra are the most popular categories. All the different theories within Algebra each have been worked millions of times, checked and rechecked for their validity, and many have been p

He also introduced the trigonometry terms of "sine", "cosine", and "tangent". (4)Algebra is a math that teaches the student how to push boundaries. The multiplication sign, "x", was first used with consistency with the works of another English mathematician, William Oughtred. (2)Another major groups of people to greatly contribute to early Algebra were the Ancient Babylonians. Similar teaching methods to the present day ones were used during their time, and many of the new ideas are based off of ancient ideas and original problem solving methods. The development of algebra over the years has been a long and complicated road. These rules have greatly influenced mathematics, and actually have played a huge role in today's society....

...HISTORY OF ALGEBRAAlgebra may divided into "classical algebra" (equation solving or "find the unknown number" problems) and "abstract algebra", also called "modern algebra" (the study of groups, rings, and fields). Classical algebra has been developed over a period of 4000 years. Abstract algebra has only appeared in the last 200 years.
The development of algebra is...

...Various derivations of the word "algebra," which is of Arabian origin, have been given by different writers. The first mention of the word is to be found in the title of a work by Mahommed ben Musa al-Khwarizmi (Hovarezmi), who flourished about the beginning of the 9th century. The full title is ilm al-jebr wa'l-muqabala, which contains the ideas of restitution and comparison, or opposition and comparison, or resolution and equation, jebr being derived from the verb jabara, to...

...The History of Algebra
The history of algebra has been around for several decades, this method of mathematics has been used during the beginning of time. The development of algebraic notation progressed through out three stages: the rhetorical stage, the syncopated stage, and the symbolic stage with which we are use to using in our daily usage of algebra. In ancient civilization math was used to help leaders to...

...History of Classical Algebra
Around grades 8 through 10, most students are learning the basics of Algebra 1 and 2. Where did this subject evolve from and who were the mathematicians who patented it? Was it just one civilization that came up with the concept or many that built on each other? These are all great questions to look at when looking at the evolution of Algebra. The ideas of Algebra were very slow developing,...

WHAT IS ALGEBRA?
• Denotes various kinds of mathematical
ideas and techniques
• more or less directly associated with
formal manipulation of abstract symbols
and/or with finding the solutions of an
equation.
HISTORICAL OBJECTIVES
1. attempts to deal with problems devoted
to finding the values of one or more
unknown quantities.
2. the evolution of the notion of number
3. the gradual refinement of a symbolic
language...

...Algebra is one of the broad parts of mathematics, together with number theory, geometry and analysis.
For historical reasons, the word "algebra" has several related meanings in mathematics, as a single word or with qualifiers.
• As a single word without article, "algebra" names a broad part of mathematics (see below).
• As a single word with article or in plural, "algebra" denotes a specific mathematical structure. See...

...The invention of algebra from the ancient world has produced many opportunities for the modern world we live in today. According to the Webster’s Dictionary, “algebra by definition is the part of mathematics in which letters and other symbols are used to represent numbers and quantities in formulae and equations.” First and for most, algebra is divided into two different groups, the first group being “classical algebra”, which is...
