The development of calculus 1600’s. The reason that it caused it is that Newton actually developed the concept of calculus during the middle of the 1660s. Calculus, Page 1 History of Calculus Development • First steps were taken by Greek mathematicians, when Archimedes (around 225BC) constructed an infinite sequence of triangles starting with one of area A and continually adding further triangles between those already there and the parabola to estimate the area of a parabola. A Brief History of Calculus. %�쏢 History of Calculus is part of the history of mathematics focused on limits, functions, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series. %PDF-1.7
