April is Math Awareness Month
Humanity faces the challenge of how to balance human
needs against the world's resources while operating within
the constraints imposed by the laws of nature.
Mathematics helps us better understand these complex
issues and is used in a wide range of fields to seek
creative solutions for a sustainable way of life. Society
and individuals must make difficult choices; mathematics
provides tools to make informed decisions.
