A new history of number should be told in Australian schools. This history evolved from combining linguistic archaeology and mathematical systems. The longevity of the mathematical systems, their relevance to people’s lives, their innovations, and sharing due to relationship building provide a fascinating history of the use of number by the multiple cultures of our region. We will look at large numbers in different systems at least 2 000 to 10 000 years old.
