Welcome to the Mathematics Portal Mathematics is a language  many mathematicians have described the process of mathematics as art and poetry. Bertrand Russell once wrote, “Mathematics possesses not only truth but supreme beauty, a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, sublimely pure and capable of a stern perfection, such as only the greatest art can show.” Other mathematicians and scientists have often written about the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in explaining the world around. Notwithstanding the poetry and the beauty, a functional knowledge of mathematics and computing is an essential skill for transacting in society. However, to appreciate the poetry of this language or to transact, one must learn the grammar and acquire the vocabulary. And school mathematics is largely about acquiring the skills to communicate and develop the love for the language. This portal is for students and teachers to engage with this language and build those skills.
