Comments for AHMOSE:

Ahmos wrote a mathematical textbook for children consisting of more than eighty mathematical problems and their solutions. This ancient papyrus was discovered in the tomb of Ahmos in the mid-nineteenth century. "Many exercises in the book show us that Africans, two thousand years before the Greeks, studied the mathematics of the pyramid and of the cone, the tangent, the sine, the cosine, and the cotangent," according to Cheikh Anta Diop.
