Mathematics plays an integral role in the world of business. Profitability, expected returns, the likelihood and risk associated with certain ventures are all possible to estimate because of the concepts and ideas presented in math. Having a firm understanding of concepts and ideas is essential to achieving success in both life and business
As a Math lover and as well as a Math teacher, I am convinced that excessive use of calculators for simple calculations cause over dependence on them. This undermines the mind’s ability to do very simple additions. This causes a lot of discomfort for the students who eventually start to hate math as a subject.
This is like asking why plural and not singular. I mean, why use plural and not just singular – always. Well, anyone (pretty much) who knows a bit of language grammar will use plural where the reference is to more than one and singular to refer a single item. No brainer here!
So, why do we use the term Math and not Maths to refer to Mathematics. Remember we don’t say or use Mathematic!!
Math touches everyone’s life more than they could ever know. From laptops to buildings to the daily weather forecast, math forms the basis for nearly everything. Even social behaviors have been examined using game theory, an offshoot of mathematics. Every science is reliant to some degree on mathematical formulas.
Starting this week, we are going to publish “Mathphrase“
It is a kind of catch phrase but for Math.
For those of you who still can’t figure out what is it, here’s a Dictionary meaning of it from the LazyMaths lexicon!
The topic of whether men or women are better at math has almost always evoked a debate. Some even call it sexist to ask such a question – or should we call just a social scientist? Why are there fewer women in math oriented careers than men? Is it because of math skills or just social causes?
We have been using numbers in everyday life. Everything from 0 to 22/7 might sound the same to most, but numbers differ from one another. Based on their characteristics, they are classified in groups. Based on all the different types of numbers Mathematician’s have named, we have built the ultimate guide to Number classification.
The associated chart shows how the number groups are related to each other. Read below for more details on each number group.
Take a look at some of the most interesting Mathematical symmetries and word values mean.
After all it’s all about numbers…
