Mathematics is a wonderful subject: it makes numbers* talk*. Mathematics helps us to measure everything in the world around us. Measuring things help us to understand them better. In fact, through the understanding of mathematical laws, concepts and formulas, we are able make *impossible* calculations and breathtakingly accurate predictions based on these calculations.

Mathematics begins right down with the basics of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Once we master these simple steps, we can move on to more complex subjects, such as area, perimeter, circumference… And then angle of refraction and the Pythagorean theory….

However, it doesn’t take a mathematical genius to tell us that we need a foundation before we can have a tower. For this reason, I’ll start with the most simplistic articles on the subject before climbing the ladder of concepts that towers above most people.

I’ll try to make learning mathematics fun, engaging, energizing, and most of all, step-by-simple-step.

Have fun, and *happy learning* ðŸ™‚
