“Life is Good for Only Two Things, Discovering Mathematics and Teaching Mathematics”.
Mathematics, the queen of all sciences remains and will remain a subject with great charm having an intrinsic value and beauty of its own. It plays an indispensable role in sciences, engineering and other subjects as well. So mathematical knowledge is essential for the growth of Science and technology, and for any individual to shine well in the field of one’s choice. In addition, a rigorous mathematical training gives not only the knowledge of mathematics but also a disciplined thought process,and an ability to analyze complicated problems.
Thiruvalluvar, the prophetic Tamil poet, atleast two thousand years ago underlined the importance and value of mathematical education by saying, vz;nzd;g Vid vOj;njd;g ,t;tpuz;Lk; fz;nzd;gthOk; capu;f;F (Fws; 392) The two that are known as numbers and letters They say are the eyes of people on the earth. (Kural 392)
Mathematics is a supremely creative force and not just a problem solving tool. A good mathematical training is much essential to create good work for posterity.
