Since then, computers have only gotten more intricate and ingrained in our everyday lives. As our technology has evolved, so has our need for people who are comfortable with math and well-trained in mathematical thinking and concepts.“Since the time of its beginnings in Egypt and Mesopotamia some 5,000 years ago, progress in mathematical understanding has been a key ingredient of progress in science, commerce, and the arts. We have made astounding strides since from the theorems of Pythagoras to the set theory of Georg Cantor. In the era of the computer, more than ever before, mathematical knowledge and reasoning are essential to our increasingly technological world.”

Unfortunately, interest in math educational programs has not kept up with increasing demand for graduates with a mathematical specialty. These are the people who would fill the jobs in the ever-expanding fields of computer science, tech entrepreneurs, online security, and so much more. The need for a basic awareness of the importance of math in our lives and economy is so great that since it was first proclaimed in 1986, the Mathematics Awareness Week has been expanded to the entire month of April, and been renamed as Mathematics And Statistics Awareness Month. This Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month, make a time to make friends with math! Learn a little bit about interesting mathematicians throughout history, read an interesting book about math, or find some fun math games to practice with your friends and family. Additionally, download these number search activities to help you have a little fun with math, and celebrate the math you find in everyday life.

Yet the application of mathematics is indispensable in such diverse fields as medicine, computer sciences, space exploration, the skilled trades, business, defense, and government. To help encourage the study and utilization of mathematics, it is appropriate that all Americans be reminded of the importance of this basic branch of science to our daily lives.”
