When studying the history of mathematical symbols, one finds that the development of mathematical symbols in China is a significant piece of Chinese history; however, between the beginning of mathematics and modern day mathematics in China, there exists a long blank period. Let us focus on the development of Chinese mathematical symbols, and find out the significance of their origin, evolution, rise and fall within Chinese mathematics.
