Unit-1 Why Learn Mathematics
This unit discusses what mathematics is, its characteristics, processes involved in developing its ideas and hierarchy of its ideas.
A friend of mine said, “I’m just a housewife. I don’t know maths, and I don’t do maths.” I strongly disagreed with her, giving her several examples of mathematics that she is doing all the time without realising it. Can you give four examples of different topics of mathematics she would be applying at home?
