The word Algebra's history dates way back 825 AD to the Islamic golden age. The Islamic golden age was an intellectual primetime in the Middle East centred in Baghdad.
During this time, many great Arabic scholars rose. A library known as the House of Wisdom was established to translate essential works of literature from diverse languages, including Chinese and Sanskrit, into Arabic.
During this time, many of the greatest intellects in history rose to their peak. This included the great Abu Nasr Al-Farabi, who is known for translating the Greek philosopher Aristotle's works.

El álgebra en general está relacionada con la aritmética, por lo que se le define como una "aritmética generalizada", esto presenta problemas a la hora de entender los cambios en los símbolos de la aritmética al álgebra.
El álgebra también puede entenderse como un instrumento para resolver problemas tanto intramatematicos como extramatematicos.

"#Economics in #Nouns and #Verbs"

Below, we share key excerpts from SFI External Prof W. Brian Arthur's (@Stanford, @PARCinc) latest, available at arxiv.org/abs/2104.01868, which we recommend for its elucidation of key blind spots in economic thinking & how to address them... Image
"Different means 'see' differently‚ÄĒoften they reveal different versions of the same object. #MRI looks at body parts and reveals soft tissue structure; #CT scanning looks at the same body parts and reveals bone structure. There is no 'correct' version of internal body parts."
"#Mathematics is powerful in #economics‚ÄĒand necessary‚ÄĒbut I don‚Äôt believe that it is suited to describing all that is interesting in an economy. In fact I don‚Äôt believe that there is any privileged way to view the economy. There are useful ways and less useful ones."

European historians use a comparative notion of ‚Äúbalance of probabilities‚ÄĚ when claiming knowledge transmission from Europe (Greece) to #India, but insist on the absolute notion of ‚Äúbeyond all reasonable doubt‚ÄĚ for reverse transmission from India into #Europe. #decolonisation
They use this double standard to sustain a Eurocentric history writing against their dialogical competitors, even in situations where application of this principle would make a stronger case for East-to-West transmission.
This strategy has been used to perpetuate the racist notion that all knowledge flowed from ancient Europe.

For example, Neugebauer in 1962 used ‚Äúpriority, accessible communication routes and methodological similarities‚ÄĚ to prove his belief that the astronomy contained

Desde ni√Īa fui muy preguntona. Inspirada por mi pap√° (que es fil√≥sofo) siempre he querido tener respuesta para la pregunta ¬ŅDe d√≥nde venimos? Soy bastante privilegiada y mi familia siempre ha apoyado todas mis decisiones. Con 17 a√Īos comenc√© a estudiar f√≠sica en la UNAM
La carrera de #f√≠sica no es sencilla pero s√≠ muy bonita. Durante ella tuve muchos altibajos. Recibir mi primer 3 en #√°lgebra para f√≠sicos el primer semestre fue bastante decepcionante. ūüė£
Trabajar en equipo con mis amig@s sirvi√≥. Las clases de much@s profesoras y profesores me inspiraban. Escoger sabiamente mis clases optativas tambi√©n era motivacional, pues esas eran las ‚Äúclases padres y divertidas‚ÄĚ

1/30 One of the major points of confusion about the #SAT and the #ACT specifically is what exactly is on the test. It’s always worth discussing the content of assessments, especially assessments that are so high-stakes.
2/30 When I started teaching shortly after college, I got into it as a part time job. I was a subject tutor, designing curricula and teaching math. I had always been comfortable with standardized tests, so it seemed (at the time) like that, too, would be straightforward work.
3/30 I‚Äôd never ‚Äúprepped‚ÄĚ for the tests myself when I was in HS, so I didn‚Äôt perceive/approach them as arenas that required strategy. It struck me that they were simply testing what I‚Äôd learned in school and my understanding of language and mathematical reasoning. #edutwitter
