Anthropology

Delve into how people use mathematics in anthropology to understand human behavior, human societies, and their development better.

Anthropology is the study of human progress throughout history. This discipline has four main subdivisions: biological,  archaeological, sociocultural, and linguistic. For instance, anthropologists study human language, early learning, societies, biology, the material remains, and humans and primates’ general habits over time. Anthropology seeks the answers to the ever-growing list of questions. For example, what causes mass extinctions in parts of the world throughout human history? Where do advanced civilizations go, like the Mayans? Keeping up with current events and successful anthropologists can be challenging.
