This project explores some of the parallel developments in philosophy and mathematics in South Asia up to about the year 1500. It was created by the authors for a team-taught class on the development of philosophy and mathematics in India. It has also been used by the first author in first-semester calculus to show how the idea of the derivative evolved in India from the study of difference equations, totally independent of the goemetric idea of tangent lines.
