  • 1. ANCIENT INDIAN MATHEMATICIANS
    Mathematics had played a significant role in the development of Indian culture and tradition. Ancient Mathematics in India or the Vedic Mathematics had begun in the early Iron Age. The Shatpata Brahmana and the Sulabasutras included things like irrational numbers, prime numbers, rule of three, and square roots and also solved many of the complex problems.

  • 3. During the Indus valley civilization the sites of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro constructions took place following precise mathematical calculation. The measurement that was used in the construction was decimal in nature and at this juncture it can be said that mathematics in the ancient age was used for the purpose of construction. Many of the Vedic texts give details about some of the geometric constructions which were used during the Vedic Age. Besides the Vedic texts and the Sulabasutras also gave enough details about the geometric constructions those were used in the ancient age.. Although during this period mathematics was mostly used for solving practical problems but at the same time there was a little development in the field of algebra.

    The Dharmasutra of Āpastamba forms a part of the larger Kalpasūtra of Āpastamba. It contains thirty praśnas, which literally means ‘questions’ or books. These praśanas consist of the Śrautasūtra followed by Mantrapāṭha which is used in domestic rites and is a collection of ritual formulas, the Gṛhyasūtra which deals with domestic rituals and lastly the Śulvasūtra which are principles of geometry needed for vedic rituals.
