Pahlawan-Pahlawan Matematika yang Terlupakan

09 Oct

     ” SAAT ini ilmu pengetahuan, khususnya matematika, berkiblat ke negeri Barat (Eropa dan   Amerika). Kita hampir tidak pernah mendengar ahli matematika yang berasal dari negeri Timur (Arab Muslim, India, Cina). Yang paling populer kita dengar sebagai matematikawan Arab Muslim yang mempunyai kontribusi terhadap perkembangan matematika adalah Al-Khawarizmi, dikenal sebagai bapak Aljabar, memperkenalkan bilangan nol (0), dan penerjemah karya-karya Yunani kuno.”

     “Apakah benar hanya itu kontribusi negeri-negeri timur (khususnya umat Islam) terhadap perkembangan matematika?”

That’s a post which i read on my friend’s blog (Dwi Afrini Risma: Student of Impome 2011). If we think more deeply about that, we will realize that we already forgot and even not appreciate or acknowldge former mathematicians like Al-Khawarizmi.

“What is contribution of Former Mathematicians, especially Muslim mathematicians, in mathematics development?”

To remember us about their contribution please read the entire post in http://dwiafrini.wordpress.com/2011/10/07/pahlawan-pahlawan-matematika-yang-terlupakan/
