Was Mathematics Discovered or Invented? (Alex Ho)

Posted on

Mathematics is a concept that leans more towards being an
invention than a discovery. Mathematics is an invention based on a discovery. Humans
were the ones who invented the names and characteristics of math. Giving
equations and numerals names, like the basic 1, 2, 3, etc and 1 + 1. We give what
we have already seen in nature, a way for us as a whole to easily understand and
know what is going on, like a language. Golden ratios our everywhere within
nature, this was already there long before we discovered it but we invented the
name “golden ratio” for it.
