Math started way back before Christ was born . Most of the time people use math, they donít even notice it. If you just go to check the time, youíre still using math. So when people a long time ago used math, they didnít know they were using it . Archimedes became really familiar with math, but no one called the study math yet. People used little pieces of it everyday and they didnít notice it so they took no notice of it at all. The Romans used Roman Numerals and noticed math and how it was used. That is where numbers got their name. The whole point is math has been around forever but we just didnít notice it until we became more sophisticated.
