While both the Sumerians and the Babylonians had many accomplishments, their achievements had similarities and differences. Their mathematics skills had many of the same basics, but, the techniques varied as they advanced. The Babylonians’ and the Sumerians’ writing was very much the same.   Their architecture is similar, but, not quite the same.   The Babylonians and the Sumerians, in fact, had numerous achievements in mathematics, writing, and architecture.
The Babylonians had many achievements in mathematics. For example, they had the concept of algebra, geometry and arithmetic. Similarly, the Sumerians had the concept of algebra, geometry, and arithmetic. On the other hand, the Babylonians had some more advanced mathematic skills.
