Maths in daily life

  1. 1. MATHS Mathematics is defined as the science which deals with logic of shape, quantity and arrangement. During ancient times , the Egyptians used maths and complex mathematic equations like geometry and algebra. Math is a part of our lives, whether we clean the house, make supper or mow the lawn. Wherever you go, whatever you do, you are using math daily without even realizing it. It just comes naturally. Maths is a universal language in that it is a language understood in all countries.
  2. 2. Uses of Maths in Daily Life Cooking Sports Gardening Banking and Shopping Navigation Finding distance and length Architecture
  3. 3. Cooking (Practical knowledge of Ratio and Proportion)  Making coffee, tea, milk- the quantity, we require the knowledge of ratio and proportion  Cooking food -breakfast, lunch, dinner needs clear knowledge of proportion for preparation to have good taste- more salt, chilly etc.  While cooking a recipe, we need to have a check on the amount of ingredient and correct measure unless our recipe will result in a blunder.
  4. 4. Sports (Practical knowledge of Probability, Mensuration and Statistics)  The mathematical concept can be applied when one wants to comment about the game.  When we toss in game, probability is used as there is an equal chance of getting head or tail.  Referees and coaches make calls which are based on time.  We can compare failure and success rate by collecting data of all the past game played. This can only be done using some aspects of maths.  To make the field of correct measure, we need good knowledge of Mensuration.
  5. 5. Finding distance and length (Practical knowledge of Trigonometry) Maths concepts are used to find or calculate:-  height of towers, mountains and tides in oceans  distance of the shore from a point in the sea and between celestial bodies.  structural load, roof slopes, ground surfaces and many other aspects, including sun shading and light angles
  6. 6. Navigation (Practical knowledge of Coordinate Geometry )  Concept is widely used while working with graphic designing software.  We often use it to navigate a city or to locate objects in a grid.  When geo caching, we use latitude and longitude.  Astronomers (and amateurs) use sky coordinates to locate objects of interest.
  7. 7. Banking and Shopping (Practical knowledge of Percentage and Interest )  We visit supermarkets to buy items, purchasing decisions require some understanding of budgets and the cost.  Transaction of money  Stocks and Bonds  EMI, Loan, Interest paid on loan, interest paid by the bank, etc.
  8. 8. Gardening (Practical knowledge of Mensuration )  Even doing something as mundane as gardening requires a basic math skill.  If we need to plant or sow new seeds or seedlings you need to make a row or count them out or even make holes.  Measuring skills is always needed, and calculations of the essence when doing something new in the garden.
  9. 9. Architecture (Practical knowledge of Mensuration, Geometry and Symmetry)  A water tower and many other structures include many solid shapes whose volume can be calculated through geometry.  Symmetrical and geometrical concepts have been applied in the construction of some famous monuments such as Taj Mahal, Eiffel Tower etc.  Areas of differently sized and shaped lands can be found through the application of area formulas  'The Pythagoras Theorem' is used to measure of size for painting a building or finding the shortest route to a particular location.
