Simple mathematics on oracle bone script date back to the Shang Dynasty (– BC). One of the oldest surviving mathematical works is the I Ching, which greatly influenced written literature during the Zhou Dynasty (– BC). For mathematics, the book included a sophisticated use of hexagrams. Leibniz pointed out, the I Ching (Yi Jing) contained elements of binary numbers.   The book consists of several chapters, and each chapter covers one topic in mathematics. Mr. Parker uses everyday life examples for each chapter to explain the basics of mathematics. In this book Author: Ali Kayaspor. A History of Chinese Mathematics Paperback – J by S.S.

A very old book, The Book of Diverse Crafts (Kao Gong Ji in Chinese), was written by B.C.E. with later additions in the Warring States Period.

The complete book known today as The Nine Chapters is the result of an 18th-century philological work based on both the former source and exhaustive quotations in a 15th-century Chinese.   Like its predecessor, How Chinese Learn Mathematics: Perspectives from Insiders, this book is a must for educational researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers who are interested in knowing more about mathematics teaching, teachers, teacher education and professional development concerning Chinese teachers and learners.

The most famous Chinese mathematics book of all time is the Jiuzhang suanshu or, as it is more commonly called, the Nine Chapters on the Mathematical Art. The book certainly contains contributions to mathematics which had been made over quite a long period, but there is little in the original text to distinguish the precise period of each.

The Nine Chapters on the Mathematical Art is a Chinese mathematics book, its oldest archeological date being AD (traditionally dated BC), but perhaps as early as BC. Although the author(s) are unknown, they made a huge contribution in the eastern world. The methods were made for everyday life and gradually taught advanced methods.
