Introduction to Mathematics.
Development of Maths.
Why do we need it?
Use in Engineering.
We humans were not meant to fiddle with numbers, we
were just like other mammals – Hunt-Eat-Sleep, but still
somehow we did created numbers to satisfy the creative
needs of human brain.
It all started with early man, who by, some means wanted
to have some record of their members in their group,
amount of food shared, how many children do they total
And thus, the invention of numbers came about. 0 to 9.
And then simple mathematical operation and complex
Development of Maths.
Indeed it was not a surprise that numbers flourished,
man grew and an era modern technology came. All
thanks to engineering maths.
Indians invented the ‘zero’ , Romans, Arabians,
Egyptians – They are all believed to be the inventers
of the number system. But, surely no record has ever
been found who created the numbers.
These numbers are about 30,000 years old.
Then came the era of thinkers who created new
mathematical operations and began to use them for
every kind of purposes purpose.
Why Do we need Maths?
It’s required everywhere, anywhere and every
time like in-
• Banking and Finance sector
And the most important use is definitely for
‘Personal day to day work’.
Use in Engineering
Used in physics ‘extensively’
Used in graphics ‘structurally’
Used in Civil engineering ‘practically’
It’s used in every field of engineering.
We require engineering maths in Bridge
construction, defence, aeronautics, nuclear
research work, etc.
One can say engineering revolution came in 17th
century, but did it always made life easy for us?
Maths did created wonders but it also created
big-big blunders. Take for example ‘The Great
Depression’ of 1929. It is one of the cause that
started the Second World War. It decimated
about 3% of world population about 60 million.
Maths has the power to comfort us and also
The only important question that remains is-
who handles it and how!!
Because Maths is too hot to handle and too
cold to Hold.
