The essay should address the question What is mathematics and why do we study it?

However, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write an essay
heard in
class discussion, what you read, and what you have considered on your own, all 3 should be represented.
The essay should address the question: What is mathematics and why do we study it?
It should be at least a page, with 1″ margins, single or 1.5 spaced.
Cite ideas or direct quotes, from things we read in class, by (Author, page).
If you refer to other resources, a full bibliographic entry should be provided (MLA style).
Your paper should be well written using proper grammar and correct spelling.
It should have an introduction with a thesis, 3 or 4 nicely developed body paragraphs, and a conclusion.
I am not asking you to write this essay because there are set, obvious, easy, or fixed answers to these
questions, but because there are not.. because it is good to think about the answers, how others answer them
and how you would answer them.
I do not start from a place that everyone must study math. Nor that math is the most valuable
knowledge in the world… thus I think it is important to think about what it is and why you are studying it..
beyond the fact that it is a requirement. Why are you asked to study it?
