## Mathematics Importance in our Life

Contemporary life demands the requirement to have good mathematical knowledge. Mathematics is important for life and supports all-round personal development. Mathematics significantly influences pupils’ and students’ education both in a special branch mathematical knowledge) and in terms of moral education. We can find mathematical application in the nature, technology, architecture, machinery, building industry, in the banking sector, in research, cartography etc. There are very interesting applications in genetics and in using mathematics in the nature. Statistical methods are used in hypothesis testing in genetics. By using mathematics, we can create statistical descriptions of quantitative relations. When we process research data, we need arithmetical diameter, scattering, standard deviation etc. Mathematics is the basis for research methods.
