Mathematics is an absolute necessity for those who live in today's society. It is not just a tool for solving problems related to science and daily living; mathematics is a science in its own right. It is also one of the humanities - one that has captured and stimulated the most creative minds all through the ages; it is the most precise of languages - one that is continually growing in order to accommodate new ideas and solve new problems; and it is a form of mental recreation that completely fascinates and absorbs the mind.
