India's contribution to mathematics

The earliest traces of mathematical knowledge in the Indian subcontinent appear with the Indus Valley Civilization (c. 4th millennium BC ~ c. 3rd millennium BC). They designed a ruler—the Mohenjo-daro ruler—whose unit of length (approximately 1.32 inches or 3.4 centimetres) was divided into ten equal parts.This shows that the maths was quite advanced even at that time but later on the inventions of some mathe-maticians revolutionized the world.

There will be a special exhibit in AnandaMela 2015. Please visit the exhibit.
