Contribution of Babylonians in Science and Technology
Babylonia was an ancient cultural region in central-southern Mesopotamia (present-day Iraq), withBabylon as its capital. Babylonia emerged when Hammurabi (fl. ca. 1696 – 1654 BC, short chronology) created an empire out of the territories of the former Akkadian...
influenced the development of other civilizations. The Egyptians and the Babylonians changed people’s lifestyle.
The Egyptian civilization was located at the Nile River, North Africa. The Egyptians had many achievements and contributions to the society. The Nile River is one of the largest rivers in the...
important study, from ancient to modern times it has been fundamental to advances in science, engineering, and philosophy. Mathematics started with counting. In Babylonia mathematics developed from 2000B.C. A place value notation system had evolved over a lengthy time with a number base of 60. Number problems...
History of Trigonometry
Sumerian astronomers introduced angle measure, using a division of circles into 360 degrees. They and their successors the Babylonians studied the ratios of the sides of similar triangles and discovered some properties of these ratios, but did not turn that into a systematic method...
quadratic (ax2 + bx = c) equations, as well as indeterminate equations such as x2 + y2 = z2, whereby several unknowns are involved. The ancient Babylonians solved arbitrary quadratic equations by essentially the same procedures taught today. They also could solve some indeterminate equations.

According to Theon of Alexandria, who worked in Alexandria as a teacher of mathematics and astronomy, Hipparchus wrote a treatise in twelve books on chords in a circle, which has been lost (Sarton 286) . It is believed that this treatise...

Trigonometry is useful in our world. By exploring where these concepts come from provides an understanding in putting this mathematics to use. The term Trigonometry...
philosophers made some big discoveries. In order to go back to the first signs of Algebra, we have to go back over 3700 years, to the Babylonian civilization.
Babylonians were particularly proficient algebraists and in the ancient civilizations they could solve quadratic problems (Kleiner, 2007). Records...

Babylonian Government
Babylonia had a very good and simple government. Babylonia had a Monarchy government run by many kings. Hammurabi (6th king of dynasty) provided Babylon with a strong central government. This government was fair to all citizens and easily controlled. All the economy was controlled...
The first mathematics can be traced to the ancient country of Babylon and to
Egypt during the 3rd millennium BC. A number system with a base of 60 had
developed in Babylon over time. Large numbers and fractions could be represented
and formed the basis of advanced mathematical evolution....
PREHISTORIC MATHEMATICS
Our prehistoric ancestors would have had a general sensibility about amounts, and would have instinctively known the difference between, say, one and two antelopes. But the intellectual leap from the concrete idea of two things to the invention of a symbol or word for the abstract...
