Mathematics has always been the most hated subject par excellence. Formulas, numbers, theorems and axioms populate the nightmares of millions of students.
But mathematics can also be fascinating because it allows us to better shape and understand the world around us. All our technology exists thanks to mathematics, with mathematics we went to the Moon and we are able to follow the orbits of planets and stars light years away from us. With mathematics we have satellite navigators, 4k television, smartphones and computers.
We can send an encrypted message to another person sure that it is not read by other people, we can send photos in real time. It is therefore essential to learn to love mathematics because it has allowed us to achieve current human progress and, certainly, it will still bring us amazing technological discoveries in the near future. Mathematics is a universal language because it is the language spoken by Nature that often loves to use the irrational number 1.618033988, better known as Golden Ratio, for its splendid creations.
