That is a long time ago Geno.

How many years ago is that?

\$\$\\2015\; -\; -1650\\
\$Two minuses make a plus\$\\
=2015+1650\\
=3665\;\;years\\
\$That is almost 4 millenium!\$\\
\$And that is a very long time.\$\$\$

So students have been enjoying or getting tortured by mathematics for a VERY LONG TIME!

A papyrus of acient Egypt (approx 1650 BCE), listed (probably) practice problems and instructions. So, instructions in mathematics goes back many centuries.
