How Our Methods of Writing Algebra Have Evolved: A Thread through History
Oliver, Jack
Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, v21 n2 p12-17 2007
Today's generation does not always have its clever ways of writing algebraic equations and expressions. This paper attempts to trace how this system has developed since the dawn of civilization. The author looks at a few snapshots taken at distinct times to illustrate this progress. (Contains 4 tables.)
