INTRODUCTION
As the greatest Mathematician “GAUSS” has said –“MATHS IS THE QUEEN OF SCIENCE”, maths is truly the guiding force of human soul. Maths is the purest form of study of nature which comprise of a deep and rational comparison of quantities, structures, spaces, nature of change of different inter-relations and much more. Mathematicians seek out various patterns and formulate new conjectures. Mathematicians counter examines the facts by repeated and repeated logical transformations these experiments may take years and years of thorough research and dedication. USE OF MATHS IN EVERY DAY LIFE

“I love those who love geometry”-said Plato, the famous Greek philosopher and thinker.Algebra, Arithmetic, Geometry are three major components of maths. Algebra is study of symbols, Arithmetic deals with numbers and geometry plays with figures. The structure of any railway bridge is supported with triangular shaped support system(geometry),saving is vital for ones peaceful oldage (arithmetic),the combinations of different dresses one should wear so that no continues days has same pattern(algebra),all these are nothing but some simple yet important usage of maths in ones daily life. Where to go for shopping, choosing a shampoo or planning a holiday, all these things of our daily routine has something in common-its maths. Numerical and logical thinking plays a vital part in each of these every day activities. A good understanding of maths is essential for making sense of all the numbers and problems life throws at us. Many restaurants closes down within one year of their opening because of poor mathematical planning. It’s almost impossible to get through a day without using maths in one way or another. SCENARIO OF WORLD IF MATHS IS REMOVED

Maths is eyes,ears,heart,lungs and above all the basic developing tonic of any human civilization. Maths develops Maths reforms and Maths benefits. If maths is removed then there will be no rational thinking. The logic will lose its...

...Women in Mathematics
Every human is created with a gift of some sort. Whether it is an athletic ability, a wonderful singing voice, or an ability to relate to other individuals, every one has a special gifting. For many women in history, their ability was deciphering and understanding the intricacies of math. Although various cultures discouraged women mathematicians, these women were able to re-define the standards for women in this field of study.
Hypatia of Alexandria was...

To what extent is math relevant to your life and the lives of others you know and how can it become an even more viable area of knowledge.
“In mathematics I can report no deficience, except it be that men do not sufficiently understand the excellent use of the Pure Mathematics.”
Roger Bacon (1214-1294)

...Introduction
Mathematics is one of the fundamental tools in analyzing and understanding astronomy. Astronomers use mathematics to do basic conversion, calculate brightness, density and temperature and improve the understanding of astronomical images.
Most ancient astronomers views celestial objects on behalf of gods. They studied celestial objects with the hope of discovering the unknown of the world. In ancient China, astronomer is an occupation that...

...Why study Mathematics?
The main reason for studying mathematics to an advanced level is that it is interesting and enjoyable. People like its challenge, its clarity, and the fact that you know when you are right. The solution of a problem has an excitement and a satisfaction. You will find all these aspects in a university degree course.
You should also be aware of the wide importance of Mathematics, and the way in which it is advancing at a...

...Introduction
Mathematics is an indispensable subject of study. It plays an important role in forming the basis of all other sciences which deal with the material substance of space and time.
What is Mathematics?
Mathematics may be described as the fundamental science. It may be broadly described as the science of space, time and number. The universe exists in space and time, and is constituted of units of matter. To calculate the extension or...

...of any circle's circumference to its diameter in the Euclidean plane; this is the same value as the ratio of a circle's area to the square of its radius. It is approximately equal to 3.14159265 in the usual decimal notation. Many formulae from mathematics, science, and engineering involve π, which makes it one of the most important mathematical constants.
π is an irrational number, which means that its value cannot be expressed exactly as a fraction m/n, where m and n are...

...Theory of Knowledge

ToK Mathematics
“... what the ordinary person in the street regards as mathematics is usually nothing more than the operations of counting with perhaps a little geometry thrown in for good measure. This is why banking or accountancy or architecture is regarded as a suitable profession for someone who is ‘good at figures’. Indeed, this popular view of what mathematics is, and what is required to be good at it, is...
