Maths is now no longer restricted to man alone. In fact from monkeys who know the difference between numbers to dogs who can calculate fastest, animal mathematicians are teaching scientists tricks about numbers. A growing body of research confirms nature had discovered math long before people did. Studies of animal mathematicians might help explain how people learn to add, subtract, and multiply and indicate what types of math people can do without school. Watching animals solve problems could also make math more fun for people who say they can't stand the subject.
