Re-discover my Eritrean culture through Mathematics
I am trying to rediscover my own culture through mathematics. Everything I learn about Eritrean culture like alphabets, numbers, shapes, etc. it is derived from the same structure. Our difference is only the language. I speak Tigrinya, Amharic, German and English. Languages used to communicate each other. They speak English, Deutsch (German), Hebrew, Arabic and we speak Tigrinya. We can express mathematics in Tigrinya too. Our alphabets and theirs alphabets were derived from the same structure that our priests carry what’s looks like a cross. I rediscovered my own letters. I even created new Eritrean alphabets for us that might be helpful later for scientific studies. You can find them some of the new Eritrean alphabets in Google search under ‘Eritrea Math’ (Eritrea Mathematics Part 7).
Whenever I get a chance visit Eritrea, I take a lot of picture anything that has to do with mathematical structure specially on walls and doors. It remind me how math use to be taught 2o18 years ago. Mathematics did not change how it use to taught until sixteen century when calculus was introduced by Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. They both wrote each book called ‘ፍላክሽን’(Fluxion- now it is called calculus) and ላይበኒዝ ዝደረሳ ‘ኣክታ ኤሩዲቶም’ ኣብ 1684 ዓ.ም.

Both country argue. For me both get credit but it doesn’t matter they only made abstract, difficult and confusing.
