Math has way to many things that go into it for it to just be condensed into one sentence. It’s a language, has numbers, letters symbols. It’s a way to describe the world using numbers and logic. Math is quantitative and qualitative. Math is even so much more then all of that. When people who are not math majors think of math I think they think of just hard problems that are impossible to compute. Or like in class we watched a video on math genesis when they see that that’s how they few math hard problems people can figure out in a second. They have no idea what math is really all about. For me math is just like one giant puzzle. Who doesn’t love a good puzzle? Every problem you get in math class or every math problem you are trying to figure out is like one big puzzle that when put together correctly you obtain the right picture or in math the right answer. You have to make sure you put in every right piece of the puzzle so that it fits exactly right. Just like math being off my a couple numbers will throw your whole answer off you have to be exact. I don’t know who wouldn’t find that exciting. But math being like a puzzle is only part of it. We use math in our every day life when people don’t even realize it so that says so much about what goes into math. In class we were asked to write some things on the board of what we thought math was. We had about 9 sentences. Then after each person was asked to put a check mark by the one or ones they thought was true about what math was. I put a check mark by 5 of them and so did most of the class to show and prove that there is not just one sentence that describes math. There are just way to many components of math to fit into one sentence.

I don’t know much about the biggest milestones in math but I know some pretty important people were Euclid, Fibonacci, and Euler. That is all I really know about the history is the names and a little about what they did or came up with. I am looking forward to learning more about the history and milestones of the math world.
