Mathematics is the foundation on which modern science and technology is built. This video produced by TeacherTube Math looks at the historical development of mathematics. It begins with the use of mathematics by cavemen up to the present computer.

One of the key lessons in this video is that mathematics has been used as a tool to solve problems in everyday life. Math symbols also represent a unique way to communicate ideas. The video explores the development of counting systems, currencies, numeric symbols, fractions, time and mathematic computations.
