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.
