Texts in English and Burmese
- During our younger days, we studied Basic Mathematics in English as well as Burmese.
- The authors include U Thon, Daw Hla Kunt, and U Pan Yi.
Some are based on English texts such as Workman.
In Primary School and Middle School we studied
- Ganan Thin Char (Arithmetic)
- Ek Khaya Thin Char (Algebra)
- Gair Aw Me Hta Ree (Geometry)
In the old Government examinations, Mathematics examination is taken as two papers :
- Thin Char (Tit)
- Thin Char (Hnit).
For some time, the HSF and Matriculation offered Additional Mathematics.
- For our Matriculation, we took Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry. They seemed easy to Mathematical Geniuses like Min Oo (Kenneth), who had studied Calculus.
- Rangoon University used to offer Double Maths (Pure Mathematics and Applied Mathematics) and Triple Maths (Pure, Applied and Statistics).
- Most early sayas were experts in Pure Mathematics.
Some Professors in the USA view Mathematics as
- Continuous Mathematics
- Discrete Mathematics.
Professor Donald Knuth of Stanford University taught a course called “Concrete Mathematics” with topics from Continuous and Discrete Mathematics to Computer Science students. His teaching assistants published a book based on the course.
With the advent of computers, “Computational Mathematics” became a discipline.
