Mathematics as a Discipline

Mathematics (from Greek μάθημα máthēma, “knowledge, study, learning”) is the abstract study of subjects encompassing quantity, structure, space, change, and more. Mathematicians seek out patterns and formulate new conjectures. Mathematicians resolve the truth or falsity of conjectures by mathematical proof. The research required to solve mathematical problems can take years or even centuries of sustained inquiry. Like reading and writing, math is an important component of learning and using one's knowledge in each academic discipline. Mathematics is such a useful language and tool that it is considered one of the basics in our formal educational system.
