Document Summary

The shift of science from being its own state to helping the world. Tech and science--- one cant work without the other. Modern idea of science: expiriments, was not always a part of ancient science. All about gaining knowledge of the natural world. People expanded their learning mainly due to agriculture and those needs. Mathematics wasn"t just a theory people learned but was focused on specific things that were needed. Science was a practical thing, not lots of theory and tests that we have today. They would look at the sky and not predict how the earth worked but as to how the movement affected their daily lives ie. flooding season, seasons changed.

Mathematics was always connected to engineering ie. the pyramids, great wall of china.
