# Ancient vs. Modern

## By:Kaloni Alston

## Is there a connection or no.

Mathematics has always been a interest of mine. I am able to grasp math concepts easily. I am able to grasp material just by looking at examples. I sometimes wonder why do I have to learn algebra and geometry and who discovered these concepts or formulas. Was these formulas or concepts formed with the help from ancient mathematics. I have always wondered,how are ancient mathematics concepts incorporated into modern mathematics concepts. How are the United States concepts similar to those from the United Kingdom. Since I love math I came to the conclusion that I should pursue a career in mathematics. The best way to be successful in my career is to know every aspect of math including the history.
