Math is one of the very important subjects in any
curriculum whether it is CBSE, IB, IGCSE or any other board. It is said as base
of all other types of sciences as it is used as a tool to solve problems
regarding other type of sciences. Physics, Biology, Chemistry are based on
simple chemical solutions. All the reactions that are taking place in/outside
our body are chemical reactions, which contain mathematical calculations.
Math is the study of quantity, structure & changes.
We use different formulae and patterns to get the problems solved. It is an
important and mandatory tool all over the globe in the fields like natural
sciences, engineering and medicines. Without understanding mathematics from
core of our hearts, we cannot understand other types of sciences, whether it’s
Astronomy, Physics, Chemistry or any other. When we say it is the mother of all
sciences, the statement proves itself in true manner. As a mother is the main
source of life, we cannot do other sciences without studying mathematics. It is
one of the basic skills learnt by a student since she/he enters in the school.
This learning of the subjects becomes an asset for the child and a formula of
success throughout her life.
Physics explains relationships among various physical
components and their properties. It is a specific and true example of
mathematics and its characteristics. Physical theories are based on
mathematical formulae and applications which helps a student of physics to
exercise and apply it in her studies.
Mathematics topics like ratio is useful while using
various chemicals are mixed in a particular quantity to make some solution. It
is present while balancing a chemical equation.
While studying and researching upon topics of biology,
mathematics helps to figure out quantities in a model, finding out similarities
and dissimilarities. A student also calculates a number of essential, less
essential and non essential components in an experiment.
A mother gives birth to a child and the same is with mathematic. If
mathematic had not been there, no other subject could have been studied. It is
a basic skill that a child learns when he/she gets into the world of
mathematics. Mathematics is involved
everywhere but still it is considered as the hardest subject. There is nothing
like that just a pinch of dedication, practice and time can take one to the
peaks of perfection in this subject.
The subject gives the opportunity to think in his or her
way and find out the problems. It makes a person systematic and methodical. It
makes our lives orderly and systematic. It is the cradle of all creations which
make it hard for the world to move an inch without it. Whether you are a cook
or a teacher, a farmer or a mechanic, a carpenter or a magician, a scientist or
a musician, you need math in your life. It is strange but true that not only
humans, even the insects and animals need it in their everyday life.
It is strange but true that not only humans but even insects use it in
their everyday life. Nature has infinite number of examples of mathematical
patterns; spiders design creative webs,
bees make hexagonal combs, snails make shells etc. Let us realize beauty
of this subject as for no doubt: “Mathematics is the mother of all sciences “.
I find some students afraid of the subject, my advice to them is to adopt it in
their daily life to experience and learn it for a successful life.
