This book looks at how Mathematics, from its practical origin in ancient Egypt and Babylon in the Middle East, underwent conceptualization in Europe and with a classic combination with science, made possible the determination of knowledge far beyond what is perceptible to the human senses. The author opines that any society that imbibes mathematics-and-science-based approach to problem solving builds a solid foundation for its development and paves its way out of poverty, ignorance and disease. The youth, particularly in the less developed societies are encouraged to draw inspiration from these mathematico-scientific exploits of others to remain relevant in coping with nature.
