At age 7 Jonathan J. Crabtree noticed a deep 398-year-old problem. As if pulling a loose thread, he unraveled the feeble fabric of western math education to rebuild it from India’s ZERO!
Elementary maths historian Jonathan J. Crabtree has been studying the history of mathematics since 1983. Today, he is known as a guest lecturer at Indian mathematics conferences, schools, and universities. Having reviewed writings in Latin, Greek, Arabic, Sanskrit, and many other languages, his presentations reveal how India’s ‘lost’ ancient Bharatiya mathematics is superior to the western maths taught today.
I saw a problem with Western Maths in 1968. So, in 1983 I set out to find and fix Bharatiya Maths. Now, after 37 years of research spanning thousands of references across 19 languages, I have gifted Podometic Bharatiya Maths to INDIA. It is now in the hands of Union Cabinet Education Minister Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' and the Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Human Resource Development Dr Vinay Sahasrabuddhe.
