Project Description

Ishango College will empower you to take control of your
destiny through quality distance learning online courses and revision.

Everybody wants to increase their earning potential. The best way to do this is to increase your knowledge and improve your skills through study. However, most people can’t afford to stop working and pursue additional studies. Well, Ishango CollegeTM has solved this problem.

Our college name is derived from the Ishango Bone which some scientists believe is the oldest mathematical tool in existence, and which was found high in the mountains of Central Equatorial Africa in 1960.

Named by various scientists and mathematical historians as:
• A Prehistoric calculator;
• Oldest table of prime numbers;
• A lunar calendar.

The Ishango bone is a bone tool, dated to the Upper Paleolithic era and is approximately 25 000 years old. It is a dark brown length of the bone (approximately 10 cm in length), the fibula of a baboon, with a sharp piece of quartz affixed to one end, perhaps for engraving.

The bone was found by the Belgian geologist Jean de Heinzelin de Braucourt and was buried in layers of volcanic ashes on the shores of Lake Edward in the Ishango region in the DRC, near the border with Uganda.

The Ishango bone is now located at the Royal Institute for Natural Sciences of Belgium in Brussels.
