MATHEMATICS IN INDIA

After Vedanga Jyotisha, Aryabhata wrote an improved book on mathematics. It is called Aryabhatiya. Aryabhata lived in the middle of the first century A.D. He has written all about numbers, squares cubes, square root, cube root, geometry, algebra and astronomy. He was the first to start the science of algebra.

Aryabhata found that the earth was moving, and not the planets and the stars in the sky.

Many scholars have explained Aryabhatiya in their books.

The next great name in Indian mathe- matics was l3haskara. He lived in the 12th century A.D. His most famous book is Siddhanta Siromani. The first part of this book is called Lilavati. It contains many problems in mathematics.

Bhaskara’s daughter was called Lilavati. He gave his book her name, probably because he taught it to her or she helped him to write that book.
