The mathematician Benjamin Peirce called mathematics "the science that draws necessary conclusions". Albert Einstein , on the other hand, stated that "as far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality." Through the use of abstraction and logical reasoning , mathematics evolved from counting calculation measurement , and the systematic study of the shapes and motions of physical objects. Practical mathematics has been a human activity for as far back as

http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/aristotle-mathematics/

Extractions: Please Read How You Can Help Keep the Encyclopedia Free First published Fri Mar 26, 2004 Aristotle uses mathematics and mathematical sciences in three important ways in his treatises. Contemporary mathematics serves as a model for his philosophy of science and provides some important techniques, e.g., as used in his logic. Throughout the corpus, he constructs mathematical arguments for various theses, especially in the physical writings, but also in the biology and ethics. Finally, Aristotle's philosophy of mathematics provides an important alternative to platonism. In this regard, there has been a revival of interest in recent years because of its affinity to physicalism and fictionalisms based on physicalism. However, his philosophy of mathematics may better be understood as a philosophy of exact or mathematical sciences. This article will explore the influence of mathematical sciences on Aristotle's metaphysics and philosophy of science and will illustrate hisuse of mathematics. 1. Introduction

Algebra 2 Nspired and Calculus Nspired represent investments in educators, their students and math education," said Tom Dick, professor at Oregon State University who consulted with TI on the content development. "It was critical that we develop lesson resource modules that Algebra 2 and Calculus teachers could readily use to help their students understand the important mathematics."

Extractions: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search The Papyrus Rhind is the source of most of modern knowledge about mathematics in Ancient Egypt Mathematics (sometimes shortened as "maths" or "math"), is the study of numbers shapes and patterns Mathematicians are people whose job is to learn and discover such things in mathematics. Mathematics is useful for solving problems that occur in the real world, so many people, besides mathematicians, study and use mathematics. Today, mathematics is needed in many jobs. Business science engineering , and construction need some knowledge of mathematics. Mathematicians solve problems by using logic . Mathematicians often use deduction Deduction is a special way of thinking to discover and prove new truths using old truths. To a mathematician, the reason something is true is just as important as the fact that it is true. Using deduction is what makes mathematical thinking different from other kinds of thinking. Mathematics includes the study of: Numbers (example 2+2=4) Structure : how things are organized Place : where things are and their arrangement.
