Is maths everywhere? Our students respond

Mathematics expresses itself everywhere, in almost every facet of life – in nature all around us, and in the technologies in our hands. Mathematics is the language of science and engineering – describing our understanding of all that we observe. In fact, Galileo said that Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe.

Aristotle defined mathematics as «the science of quantity», i.e., “the science of the things that can be counted”. Now you can think that counting has a vital role in our daily life; just imagine that there were no mathematics at all, how would it be possible for us to count days, months and years? Unfortunately, people usually ignore the connection between mathematics and the daily life.

Most of university degrees require mathematics. Students who choose not to take seriously mathematics or to ignore it in high school, find several difficulties when they come up against them at the university.

This study explores the perceptions of how mathematics influences our daily life among our students and how teachers can use this information in order to improve the academic performance. The used research instrument was a questionnaire that was designed to identify their understanding on learning mathematics.
