## The Mathematics Portal

Mathematics from the Greek: μαθηματικά or mathēmatiká, is the study of patterns.^ Mathematics is commonly defined as the study of patterns of structure, change, and space.

^ A study of patterns often reveals regularity, indicating the presence of a mathematical relationship.

.Such patterns include quantities (numbers) and their operations, interrelations, combinations and abstractions; and of space configurations and their structure, measurement, transformations, and generalizations.^ Methods of solution include undetermined coefficients, differential operators, variation of parameters, series solutions, Laplace Transforms, reduction to first order system and numerical methods such as Eulers, Runge-Kutta and multi-step.

^ Topics include real numbers and cardinality of sets, sequences and series of real numbers, metric spaces, continuous functions, integration theory, sequences and series of functions, and polynomial approximation.

^ Tools and themes are the means, not the end: their purpose is to help create a course where students can learn algebra concepts such as function, numbers, variables, operations, equations, and more generally mathematical structure .

.Mathematics evolved through the use of abstraction and logical reasoning, from counting, calculation, measurement, and the systematic study of positions, shapes and motions of abstract objects.^ This course stresses mathematical reasoning and the different ways problems are solved.  Interwoven in this course are:  mathematical reasoning (logic and mathematical proofs), algorithm (use of pseudocode), combinatorial analysis (ability to count), and discrete structures and their basic applications.

^ The major disciplines within mathematics arose out of the need to do calculations in commerce, to measure land and to predict astronomical events.

^ According to the Third International Mathematics and Science Study, or TIMSS, use of calculators in U.S. fourth-grade mathematics classes is about twice the international average.
