Week 7 Check

Re: Week 7 | Discussion – Describing Nature with Math


I agree with Albert Einstein, mathematics were created by humans. Humans that were guided by God. The Bible explains that everything on Earth was created by God, and everything that happens is under His control. God created humans in His image and likeness, therefore He is behind the creation of mathematics. 


The mathematician that I chose is Albert Einstein. Even though he is remembered for his contributions to physics, Albert Einstein made important contributions to mathematics. He contributed several equations to calculus and geometry. Ten of these equations are known as the Einstein field equations, they were published in 1915. One of these equations demonstrated hos stress-energy inflicts curvature of space-time. Albert Einstein was passionate about geometry and algebra. At the age of twelve, he was convinced that nature could be understood as a mathematical structure. 

Albert Einstein’s areas of study were physics and math. He developed the special and general theories of relativity. He won the Nobel Prize for physics for his explanation of the photoelectric effect. 

Einstein could not find a teaching position and began to work in a Bern Patent office. In between analyzing patent applications, he developed his work in special relativity and other areas of physics.
