Mathematics is important. It is the one true language that we have found to describe our reality and the patterns and relationships between things. It teaches us that there is always hope for finding a solution to any problem, the only thing stopping us is our understanding. It is found in nature - snail shells, ferns and spiders webs are some of the common examples of this beauty. Without mathematics, our civilisation would not have been able to advance and progress through the ages as it has done. Maths is used in various degrees in every job that you can imagine. Maths brings order to chaos, and allows us to explore.
Maths develops reasoning, creativity, abstract / spatial thinking, critical thinking, problem solving and even effective communication. It teaches us to be methodical to arrive at a solution, and to persevere, as there is always an answer. The more that you can learn in Maths, the more you are able to learn about the world, and to be able to pursue the types of careers that will discover new things, and create new ideas in the world. Maths knowledge will help you to shape the future of society.
