Sometimes you just have to call it as you see it.

Mr. Boyle, that wonderful math teacher who taught for 34 years in the Port Washington, NY school district, passed away in May of 2008.

A memorial award/scholarship has been created in his name. See www.facebook.com/RememberMrBoyle/notes for how to donate.

Fascinating!

Rhind Mathematical Papyrus, 1650 BCE.

The Rhind Mathematical Papyrus is sometimes called the “Ahmes Papyrus” in honor of the scribe who compiled it. The papyrus is from the Egyptian Middle Kingdom and dates to around 1650 BCE.

It was purchased by Henry Rhind in Egypt in 1858 and placed in the British Museum in 1864 by the estate of Henry Rhind, thus it bears his name.

This papyrus was probably a mathematics textbook, used by scribes to learn to solve particular mathematical problems by writing down appropriate examples. Eighty-four problems are included in the text, including: tables of divisions, multiplication, and handling of fractions; and geometrical examinations of volumes and areas.

The manuscript shows that Egyptians used first-order equations and solved them in several ways. They also know quadratic equations and solve them. They also know numerical and geometric sequences and know quadratic equations like the two:

X2 + y2 = 100,

Y = 3/4 x, where x = 8, y = 6,

This equation is the origin of the Pythagoras theorem, a2 = b 2 + c 2, and Egyptians used to call the unknown number (koom).

Pythagoras developed his mathematical theories after travelling to Egypt and learning from Egyptian priests, and this has been proven in the books of Greek historians and scholars such as Farpharius of Sour, Herodotus and Thales.

The Egyptians had algebra, trigonometry, and geometry about 2.000 years before the birth of Pythagoras... and about 3.000 years prior to al-Khwarizmi being born. ..
