Mathematics in Daily Life
Waxing eloquently on the basic importance of Mathematics in human life, Roger Bacon (1214-1294), an English Franciscan friar, philosopher, scientist and scholar of the 13th century, once stated: "Neglect of mathematics works injury to all knowledge, since he who is ignorant of it cannot know the other sciences or the things of the world." And the ingenuity of his statement is there before us to see, in this Internet era.
However , mathematics, in itself, has all the ingredients that make it a universal language , common to all human beings , regardless of culture , religion , or gender. Pi is always 3.14159 regardless of where we are . Similarly, an elementary mathematical processes (e.g. , addition, subtraction , etc. ) will not be changed due to changes in the location or for any other reason. All of them speak about the close intertwining of mathematics in our daily life.
At a time when even the common man is now more dependent on the application of science and technology in the day - to-day activities of life , the role of mathematics , of course, have been revised . Since the rise early hours per day under zvonsignalizatsii wait svistkiplita graphs , currency exchange at the ticket outlet while воспользовавшисьобщественным transport , almost every next moment we delaemprostye calculations in the back of our mind. Of course , this is all done quite unconsciously, nedumal being spared for the use of mathematics in all such cases .
Reading the time on the clock, okruglyayadatu on the calendar proveryayaprobeg your car , stopping at a gas station , doing a roll call at school , getting scores in class exams , scoring in the game , betting on horse racing , preparing a recipe in the kitchen, - the list is endless , if one goes to write a situation where our computational skills , or rather simple mathematics comes to play a role . It scares us to think , to some extent ozhizni without knowledge of calculation or computation , or , in other words mathematics. In mnogihsluchae otsutstviyaformalnogo education has virtually no effect nabiraetotnositelnoe mastery in these computational skills that are so essential in our daily life.
