Why Maths



By Chris Ramsey

Youth Today



Today's Youth have the power to change the world. We can change the world thorough education one class at a time but what has maths got to do with anything:
  • Math is everything and math is nothing at the same timeā€¦..
  • It is often untouchable but absolutely necessary to explain all things real.
  • We see it in nature, human behaviour, Art and Engineering, it is everywhere
  • Math is logic and reasoning. It supports arguments and is persuasive
Not many students actually become mathematicians but we can still show them how maths can benefit creative, artistic, athletic and many other endeavours that can be useful to them in their future careers as well as right here and now.
We need to find a way to allow students to show off their unique talents.

One hopes that students will use what they learn in schools to far exceed our own achievements and that of others.

This is the beginningā€¦..
