Mathematics is generally thought of as being about numbers, but in fact Mathematics is a language! Mathematics is the language that nature speaks to us.If we learn to understand and speak this language, we can discover many of nature’s secrets. Just as understanding a person’s language is necessary to learn more about that person, mathematics is necessary to learn about all aspects of the world, be it the physical sciences, the life sciences, or finance and economics.
The world’s great writers and poets have the ability to pull words out and put them together to tell beautiful and inspiring stories. In the same way, one can use mathematics to explain and create new things. Much of the modern technology that has enriched our lives relies heavily on mathematics: DVDs, Google searches, bank cards with PIN numbers are just a few examples. And just as words were not created specifically to tell a story, but by their very existence a story was told, so the mathematics used to create these technologies was not developed for its own sake, but was prepared to be used when the time came for its application.
