Description: What is mathematics? Anyone who has taken a science or business course knows one answer: mathematics is a language. In any discipline in which quantity plays a role (such as chemistry, economics, sociology, or engineering) mathematics is used to both communicate and reason. To make oneself understood in any such discipline, and even to comprehend our technological society, one must be able to “speak” mathematics.

Mathematics has also been called a science, the science of reason. Perhaps less familiar is the idea of mathematics as art. Mathematicians often speak of patterns and structure of their discipline as “beautiful” or “subtle”, and even calculus itself has been said to be “… like the full-rigged sailing ship, a classic expression of Western genius.”
