Geometry Means Earth Measure so Shouldn’t Math Students Know History of Concept of Arc Minutes & Seconds?


Anciently the earth was measured (geometry) by its axial precession rate, 72 years/degree, using such as the instrument (the remains of which were found in the Great Pyramid) known as the Dixon Relics, and by what became known as the Celtic Cross, so shouldn’t this history be taught to all students of mathematics and astronomy so that they will know the geometry (earth measure) which is the basis of our modern nautical mile mapping system, the origin of the number of seconds, minutes, and hours composing our timekeeping system, the reason the Sumerians used a sexagesimal numbering system?
