Mathematics is the study of quantity, structure, space, and change. Mathematicians seek out patterns and formulate new conjectures they also resolve the truth or falsity of conjectures by mathematical proofs. Math has been around since early man and even though the basic procedure of counting has been around for centuries. Both the Chinese and the Arabs were doing math many centuries ago. The Arabs pulled ahead in terms of skill because of their superior form of notation — the 10-digit decimal system that is in use today in most of the world.
The Chinese system, which used an abacus, was similarly sophisticated and the introduction of the concept of “zero” as a number, the Arabs are definitely the geniuses behind math, as we know it today. There is a conception that the Greeks used math to unite a culture and a language from Italy to North Africa. The research required to solve mathematical problems can take years or even centuries of sustained inquiry.
