Algebra, the Camel

1.  In mathematics, the Arab zero, provided new solutions for complicated mathematical problems.

2.  The Arab decimal system facilitated the course of science.

3.  The Arabs developed algebra and made great strides in trigonometry. Al-Khwarizmi, credited with the founding of algebra, was inspired by the need to find a more accurate and comprehensive  method of ensuring precise land divisions so that the Koran could be carefully obeyed in the laws of inheritance.

4.   The writings of Leonardo da Vinci, Leonardo Fibonacci of Pisa, and Master Jacob of Florence show the Arab influence on mathematical studies in European universities.

5.  The reformation of the calendar, with a margin of error of only one day in five thousand years, was also a contribution of Arab intellect.
