Algebra By: Daniela Lopez, Jose Pablo Sachica and Juan Ernesto Pinto



Muhammad ibn Musa (al-Jwarizmi):

Was a Arabic mathematician that had a great influence in the european mathematics. He wrote a book name "book of the reduction" in which he create and invented the first rules of the algebraic calculus. With the book he wrote it marked the beginning of mathematic literature . That book proofs the term algorithm.

Leonardo Fibonacci:

Created the Fibonacci series. Was born in 1770 and died in 1250. Italian mathematician.Created the Fibonacci series. The series consists in adding the last number to the new number. First 10 numbers of the series are 1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89. Encouraged the use of Hind-Arabic numerals


Develop of algebraic symbolism:

Used vowels, such as A here, to represent unknowns, and consonants, such as B ,Z, to denote constants. Algebra was significantly more systematic in the formal manipulation of equations than that of his predecessors, but it still does not reach the facility of modern techniques, because negative numbers weren't consider, and did not yet have a symbol for equality.

Creation of theories and foundations of algebra:

Foundations of mathematics is the study of the philosophical and logical[and/or algorithmic basis of mathematics or, in a broader sense, the mathematical investigation of what underlies the philosophical theories concerning the nature of mathematics.In this latter sense, the distinction between foundations of mathematics and philosophy of mathematics turns out to be quite vague. Foundations of mathematics can be conceived as the study of the basic mathematical concepts (number, geometrical figure, set, function, etc.) and how they form hierarchies of more complex structures and concepts, especially the fundamentally important structures that form the language of mathematics (formulas, theories and their models giving a meaning to formulas, definitions, proofs, algorithms, etc.) also called metamathematical concepts, with an eye to the philosophical aspects and the unity of mathematics

The encourage of Hindu-Arabic numerals:

Leonardo Fibonacci encourage other mathematicians to use the Hindu-Arabic numerals. Hindu-Arabic numerals is a set of 10 numerals (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0) that numbers are in the decimal number system.

Use of algebra in the Romans:

By the middle of the 1st Century BCE, the Roman had grip on the old Greek empires, and the mathematical revolution of the Greeks . No mathematical innovations occurred under the Roman Empire, and there were no mathematicians e. The Romans had no use for pure mathematics, only for its practical applications.

Roman numerals are well known today, and were the dominant number system for trade and administration in most of Europe for the best part of a millennium. It was decimal system but not directly positional, and did not include a zero, so that, for arithmetic and mathematical purposes, it was a clumsy and inefficient system. It was based on letters of the Roman alphabet (I, V, X, L, C, D and M).

Linear thinking solving for first degree equations:

Explored for first time in 1650 B.C then it was explored deeper in the early 17th century in which they found a modern way of understanding equations as lines. Finally in the 1800´s "Daboll´s Schoolmaster´s Assistant" the most popular arthimetic book in america was published.
