Mathematics is a universal language

By Sherwin M. Orbon

Modern life demands the requirement to have good mathematical knowledge. Mathematics is important for life and supports all-round personal development. Mathematics significantly influences students’ education both in academics and in terms of moral education. We can find mathematical application in the nature, technology, machinery, building industry, in the banking sector, in research, and many more. By using mathematics, we can create statistical descriptions of quantitative relations. When we process research data, we need data analyzation, central tendency, deviation etc.

Despite the fact that the value of mathematics in society and economics is understood, in recent decades students’ mathematics skills have deteriorated in the country. Learning outcomes in mathematics are not dependent solely on good teaching, sufficient resources or other external considerations with bearing on learning. Factors with bearing on what the student does include attitudes: orientations, intentions and motivations. Orientation describes a student’s conscious and unconscious study habits, intention a student’s own conscious objective-setting and motivation the will to achieve the objectives set. In order to achieve learning objectives, activity on the part of the learner is required. As student’s attitudes and motivational factors are individual, good teaching should take into account student’s different learning styles.

The importance of mathematics is magnificent. In addition to mathematical solutions in everyday life, mathematics plays a key role in solving more complex problems. Mathematics is a universal language that is applicable across different cultures and professions, making it an essential tool for communication and collaboration in today’s globalized world. Overall, understanding and appreciating the importance of mathematics can help individuals make informed decisions and succeed in various fields, contributing to a more productive and prosperous society.
