The rich field of mathematics has been known for at least four thousand years, but the concept of zero as a number is less than twelve hundred years old. Think about that for just a moment: there is an entire history of math that goes on for twenty-eight hundred years without any consideration of treating nothing, “zero,” as a number. This ancient math was hardly primitive: have a look at the work of the third-century BCE Greek mathematician, Archimedes, who solved such complex problems as the quadrature of the parabola and was able to estimate the area of a circle nearly two thousand years before the invention of calculus and the fullest understanding of π. The concept of zero as a number might seem self-evident to you, but it wasn’t to millennia of mathematics geniuses. Perhaps you’ve never considered that math has a history—that it changes over time as understanding of it develops—but you know something unknown to Archimedes (and countless others): that zero is a number. You know this even if you don’t know how to solve the quadrature of the parabola (or even what it is). How fantastic!

Nonetheless, math can be a terribly difficult subject, despite your knowing that zero is a number and especially since almost every concept seems to be crucial to understanding some more advanced one. If you’re finding your math classes to be particularly difficult and could use some expert guidance, you can benefit from one-on-one tutoring from one of Varsity Tutors’ experienced math tutors across the United States.
