Mathematics has an important role in our life, it not only helps in day-to-day situations but also develops logical reasoning, abstract thinking and imagination. It enriches life and provides new dimensions to thinking. The struggle to learn abstract principles develops the power to formulate and understand arguments and the capacity to see interrelations among concepts. The enriched understanding helps us deal with abstract ideas in other subjects as well. It also helps us understand and make better patterns, maps, appreciate area and volume and see similarities between shapes and sizes. The scope of Mathematics includes many aspects of our life and our environment. This relationship needs to be brought out at all possible places.
