Mathematics, WOw !!! Its considered to be most complex and most disliked subject in the school times. But, I loved it always as it made my career into the technology and it is the base for the whole world. Without maths nothing can work. You start your day and end it with maths only as you wake up you see the time which is contribution of maths and when you sleep you again see whats the time? You earn in maths (means you get salary but those digits), you count your life in maths (years), you are bound to maths, your life is bound to it thus it is the greatest thing ever happened in the world. Thanks to Aryabhat who developed this subject.

Yes. I like mathematic very much. Actually not only mathematic but I like all subjects that involve calculation. Most of the people think that guy usually better in calculation and girl better in memorising. I think this is not really true because I am the top student in my class for mathematics and science in my secondary school. Even now I am quite top in mathematics.

I loved Math when I was still in school and could do things in my head. But after being in the workforce for the last 40 years and having to use a calculator etc I can't seem to do them in my head anymore

Mathematics (abbr. maths or math) is the discipline that deals with concepts such as quantity, structure, space and change. It evolved, through the use of abstraction and logical reasoning, from counting, calculation, measurement and the study of the shapes and motions of physical objects. Mathematicians explore such concepts, aiming to formulate new conjectures and establish their truth by rigorous deduction from appropriately chosen axioms and definitions.
Knowledge and use of basic mathematics is widespread, as it has been throughout history. Refinements of basic ideas are visible in ancient mathematical texts originating in ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and ancient India, with increased rigour later introduced by the ancient Greeks. From this point on, the development continued in short bursts until the Renaissance period of the 16th century where mathematical innovations interacted with new scientific discoveries leading to an acceleration in understanding that continues to the present day.
Today, mathematics is used throughout the world in many fields, including science, engineering, medicine and economics. The application of mathematics to such fields, often dubbed applied mathematics, inspires and makes use of new mathematical discoveries and has sometimes led to the development of entirely new disciplines. Mathematicians also engage in pure mathematics for its own sake without having any practical application in mind, although others may discover applications later
The evolution of mathematics might be seen to be an ever-increasing series of abstractions, or alternatively an expansion of subject matter. The first abstraction was probably that of numbers. The realization that two apples and two oranges have something in common was a breakthrough in human thought. In addition to recognizing how to count physical objects, prehistoric peoples also recognized how to count abstract quantities, like time — days, seasons, years. Arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division), naturally followed. Monolithic monuments testify to knowledge of geometry.
Further steps need writing or some other system for recording numbers such as tallies or the knotted strings called quipu used by the Inca empire to store numerical data. Numeral systems have been many and diverse.
From the beginnings of recorded history, the major disciplines within mathematics arose out of the need to do calculations relating to taxation and commerce, to understand the relationships among numbers, to measure land, and to predict astronomical events. These needs can be roughly related to the broad subdivision of mathematics, into the studies of quantity, structure, space, and change.
Mathematics since has been much extended, and there has been a fruitful interaction between mathematics and science, to the benefit of both. Mathematical discoveries have been made throughout history and continue to be made today. According to Mikhail B. Sevryuk, in the January 2006 issue of the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society, "The number of papers and books included in the Mathematical Reviews database since 1940 (the first year of operation of MR) is now more than 1.9 million, and more than 75 thousand items are added to the database each year. The overwhelming majority of works in this ocean contain new mathematical theorems and their proofs

mathmatics is an interestig subject.the whole world is depending on technology and science for which maths is a background.olden days when the computers and caliculators were not there the maths subject was confined to intellectuals only.but the latest devices made the subject easy.

Wow!!!!!!! math the easiest hardest school subject, for if you understand it, it will be piece of cake but if you miss it, well it take some brain muscle to figure it out. greetings. : )
