How Much do You Know about Mathematics?

Estimated reading time Time 1 to read

There is no Nobel Prize for Mathematics. It is believed that this is because Alfred Nobel was not interested in the field, as it is an eminently theoretical science and his intent was to reward discoveries that significantly and “tangibly” contributed to humanity’s progress.  However, achievements in mathematics are recognized by the Fields Medal, the so-called Nobel of mathematics.

Mathematics is the most accurate science there is. Mathematical statements formulated thousands of years ago are still used today.  You don’t need to be an expert to understand the importance of mathematics in history and in our daily lives.

In the quiz below you will find out how much you know about some of the mathematical geniuses and discoveries that changed the history of humanity.
