Math nomenclature and systems are imperative for our understandings of math and its role in our world. As we explored the Mayan, Roman and Binary mathematical systems today, I was able to note the simplicity of mayan and Roman math and the complexity of the binary system. Yet the binary system is extremely important in our lives as it is what composes of our computers and other pieces of technology. By viewing these systems, I have been able to gauge how math has been developed and the unique ways of “doing” math. As of the current day, we are using the Hindu Arabic system, which seems to be far more convenient and useful than its precursor languages. However, the question still remains if there exists even more efficient and effective ways of performing the art of mathematics.
