April is Arab Heritage month. Did you know that Iraqis discovered math? The Sumerians that lived in Mesopotamia (modern day Iraq) invented the first numerical system.  Iraq is also home to the world's oldest civilization. In Arabic, the word "Iraq" means "deep rooted, well-watered fertile". The world's oldest writing came into existence in Iraq. The Cuneiform script came into the world in southern Mesopotamia, in what is now Iraq, 3400 BC. It was originally developed to record the language of the Sumerians and appeared even earlier than Egyptian hieroglyphics.
