Mathematicians are People Too

Most people either like mathematics... or they don't.  Many have discovered that the more they understand mathematics, the better they like it.  Sometimes they actually ENJOY it!  Yes, math can be fun!  So many things in our everyday life are related to mathematics.  Most of the time if it wasn't for math, we'd be living in the dark ages.  Literally!

Here you can find answers to math questions and everyday math problems.  You can also discover what some of our experts thought about math when they were in school.  In some cases you will be surprised at the field they entered for a career!
