Is the maths an Invention or Discovery? (Josh Luong)

Posted on Updated on

Maths has been implemented into
everyday life and is used all the time however was it invented by humans or is
it natural and we happen to stumble across the phenomenon. I believe that
mathematics was invented and created by humans in a way where people can
understand the concept easier that was already here. Like language used to
describe an object where that object was already in our world but we need a way
to explain so humans created languages. In a similar way, mathematics was in
our world however there had to be a way to explain the concept and so we used
numbers, formulas and notation. As simple mathematics evolved from addition and
subtraction into more advanced maths we keep on inventing new way to describe
the discovery with our formulas and equation.
