Last week ago, my lecture, Mr. Marsigit give task to search about concept, problematic or mathematics solutions in old period which still use or not in this period. It’s perhaps strange that for a subject that relies so strongly on mathematical proof, there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to answering the question, what is mathematics?” Aristotle defined mathematics as the science of quantity”, while Isidore Auguste Comte preferred calling it the science of indirect measurement” and Benjamin Peirce the science that draws necessary conclusions”.MathematicMathematic

The Nipissing University Mathematics Education, Research, and Information Centre (NUMERIC) represents a group of educators from the Faculty of Arts and Science (Mathematics/Physics), the Faculty of Education (Mathematics), and the local community who share an interest in promoting the learning and appreciation of mathematics through a variety of sponsored events.Mathematic

The Centre’s mission is to stimulate research activity in mathematical and statistical modelling of complex systems. During the early days of primary school, mathematics classes are the most dreaded considering that the process of memorizing the multiplication table was an arduous task. Mathematical Platonists eagerly point out that elegant fractal patterns are common in nature, and that mathematicians clearly discover rather than invent them. We could use highly cumbersome equations, but that isn’t the point of mathematics.

Mathematics originated from logical reasoning, counting, calculation, measurement and systematic studies like the ones of shapes or motion. The best careers and degrees for mathematic lovers are broad but include Actuarial Science, Computer Science, Software Development, Mathematics Teacher, and Professional Accounting. Most of the mathematical notation in use today was not invented until the 16th century.

Mathematics is important in everyday life, many forms of employment, science and technology, medicine, the economy, the environment and development, and in public decision-making.

Modern notation makes mathematics much easier for the professional, but beginners often find it daunting.
