Algebra

Unlike geometry, algebra was not developed in Europe. Algebra was actually discovered (or developed) in the Arab countries along side geometry. Many mathematicians worked and developed the system of math to be known as the algebra of today. European countries did not obtain information on algebra until relatively later years of the 12th century. After algebra was discovered in Europe, mathematicians put the information to use in very remarkable ways. Also, algebraic and geometric ways of thinking...

sense that there are many aspects of Algebra that the majority of people do not use on a daily basis. I think that this fact is what leads people to the false conclusion that Algebra is useless. To better understand our topic, let’s define what we mean when we say “Algebra”. Webster’s dictionary defines Algebra as “a form of mathematics dealing with symbols and equations.” A guest in the mathematics forum on xpmath.com states that “…the truth is that Algebra is not much more than arithmetic expanded...

History of Algebra

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 solving equations and finding the unknown variable. The second group...
