 Did you ever stop to think about how a video game works? How about a 3D movie or that new app you just downloaded? Computer programs are based on mathematic formulas and logic that are applied to a particular use. Long after current technology becomes obsolete, the science of math will continue to solve existing problems or discover new concepts. Mathematics is the foundation upon which the other sciences are built so the next time you think of math as just being about algebra and geometry, think again.
