Mathematicians Of The Day

28th October

Quotation of the day

From John Wallis
Mathematicks, (at that time, withus) was scarce looked upon as Academical Studies, but rather Mechanical; as the business of Traders, Merchants,, Seamen, Carpenters, Suveyors of Lands, or the like; and perhaps Almanack-makers in London ... For the study of Mathematicks was more cultivated in London than in the Universities.
