Archimedes is widely regarded as the father of mathematics.
Fair comment to say that it is Archimedes, but Pythagoras or Euclid must come close. But even Isaac Newton could be, because Mathematics is not something fixed in stone for thousands of years. It's evolving and growing even today.<br />
But I think so far Euclid because he laid down some of the basic arguments and reasons for things and his book Elements is still invaluable today thousands of years later. He was more single minded about mathematics than Pythagoras who was more a philosopher outside of his work on the Pythagoras theory.
I don't think there is ONE father many have contributed, and India produced mathematicians before Greeks, as well as Sanskrit language before Greek. Indian mathematicians "invented" zero, without which all mathematics would have no basis as every equation, no matter how complex, can be set to equal zero. It was so long ago the person's name probably isn't known.

Imhotep is the father of mathematics as well as medicine and architect.
Archimedes is the Father of Mathematician and he contributed a lot in mathematics. He gave the basic concepts of Calculus. Moreover, he also gave various other mathematics concepts. <br />
Most of the people think that Euclid is the father of mathematics but they are wrong because Euclid is the father of geometry. For reference check the given link:
Do you know who is the "Mother of Mathematics"?<br />
Pythagoras I think
i am with freed, Summarian and Sanskrit languages both use numbers and have been around much much longer then Archimedes.
Ogg, the cave man
The ones who, 17 thousand years ago, built the building around Lake Titicaca. They're all exactly aligned to the inclination of the Earth's axe. Which is why we know when they were built, since that axe varies because of having a slight "wobble"...
probably a cotton farmer..or so ive been led to believe by the american southern cotton workers union on several occasions
It's probably the great Archimedes who have done big achievements in the history of mathematics.
