Ancient African Mathematics. Africa is home to the world's earliest known use of measuring and calculation, confirming the continent as the birthplace of both basic and advanced mathematics.

Thousands of years ago, Africans were using numerals, algebra and geometry in daily life. This book is intended to be used by children ages 5 to 6. Other age groups will also benefit from the book. Anyone can use this book globally, although the curriculum may differ slightly from one region to the other.

This is so because the core content of Mathematics is the same around the world.
