Mathematics Tutorial
Mathematics is studied because it is helps people predict things in their lives.

Mathematics uses the fact that a written letter or number can be used to represent(be a picture of) a quantity of real objects.  For example, if you look at a parking lot with 535 cars in it the number 535 will be a representation, or picture of, the amount of real cars in the lot.

Math is no mysterious thing that deals with mysterious objects.  Math deals with things that are right in front of us like the total coss of the  items in our shopping cart and the number of boards needed to frame a house before it is built so we can get an estimate of costs before we build.
