The Power of Mathematical Thinking

July 8, 2016

But in an era where the smartphone in our pocket gives us access to tools that will solve most mathematics problems, both pure and applied, mathematical thinking is arguably one of the most powerful tools available to meet the challenges of the Twenty-First Century. And it was always so. Mathematics arises as a codified product (often a by-product) of the mathematical thinking of z previous time.
