why study mathematics?

Mathematics is a language that can communicate visually and symbolically. It can express ideas that other languages cannot articulate with conciseness, clarity and precision. Mathematics is also a way of thinking that can empower an individual to be critical, creative, logical and methodical. Mathematics is a language and a way of thinking that everybody can and must learn.


Most mathematical concepts and principles developed from the need of humankind to understand, solve, and investigate problems in his day-to-day activities. In the present society, mathematics is one of the most powerful tool in understanding, and investigating problems in the real-world. This power of mathematics is due to the very nature of this discipline: it is both a language and a way of thinking.
