The Beauty of Math

โ€œWhen will we ever use this in real life?โ€ asked the math students.

Well, everywhere and forever. Mathematicians did not create equations, they discovered them. They were already there, and we just happened to stumble upon them through intelligent, ceaseless effort. Makes you think a little, doesn’t it?

Cool finds like these remind us how easy it is to give a new life to our used items. This is important. Think of how many things we throw away a year that could have been put to a nifty use? A lot, that’s how many. Fun DIY projects not only reduce waste, but give you a sense of accomplishment. A sense of accomplishment gives us that extra “umph” to get through the daily grind, a true necessity. If we don’t feel like we’ve accomplished anything, we’ll just feel stuck and glum! So get crackin’ and have fun!
