  • Introduction
    "Nothing pertaining to humanity becomes us so well as mathematics. There, and only there, do we touch the human mind at its peak." - Isaac Asimov.

    Mathematics is the study of numbers, shape, logic and dynamics.  Mathematicians work with theorems, and come up with generalizations of problems, using algebra, number theory, geometry, topology, calculus, chaos theory, probability and logic.  Mathematics is also the "art of problem solving".  It is used to solve problems from determining planetary orbits, to improving the speed of computer processing, to the movement of fluids, and in making movies.
