Adam Ries gilt als der „Vater des modernen Rechnens”. Er hat mit seinen Werken dazu beigetragen, dass sich die indisch-arabischen Zahlzeichen drchsetzten, weil sie sich nach dem Stellenwertsystem strukturieren ließen. Bekannt wurde er durch sein Lehrbuch "Rechenung auff der linihen und federn...,das er in deutscher Sprache schrieb. Dadurch erreichte er einen großen Leserkreis und konnte darüber hinaus auch zur Vereinheitlichung der deutschen Sprache beitragen.
