A History of Mathematics Free Download

About Book

An increased interest in the history of the exact sciences manifested in recent years by teachers everywhere, and the attention given to historical inquiry in the mathematical class-rooms and seminaries of our leading universities, cause me to believe that a brief general History of Mathematics will be found acceptable to teachers and students. The pages treating necessarily in a very condensed form–of the progress made during the present century, are put forthwith great diffidence, although I have spent much time in the effort to render them accurate and reasonably complete. Many valuable suggestions and criticisms on the chapter on Recent Times have been made by Dr. E. W. Davis, of the University of Nebraska. To all the gentlemen above named, as well as to Dr. Carlo Veneziani of Salt Lake City, who read the first part of my work in manuscript, I desire to express my hearty thanks.
