The benefits of mathematics in business and personal finance
However, the use of mathematics in other areas of life is often overlooked. In this blog post, we take a look at some of the surprising places where mathematics can be found.
Mathematics is often used in music, both in the creation of musical compositions and in the analysis of musical recordings. Composers will often use mathematical concepts such as rhythm, melody and harmony to create their pieces, while musicologists will use mathematical techniques to study the structure of songs and to identify patterns in music.
Many artists use mathematics to create their artwork. Some artists use mathematical concepts such as symmetry and proportion to create pleasing compositions, while others use more complex techniques such as fractal geometry to create intricate and detailed patterns.
Architects use mathematics to design both the external and internal structures of buildings. They must take into account the strength of materials, the loads that the building will need to support, the amount of light that the building will need to let in, and the acoustics of the space.
Fashion designers use mathematics to create both clothing and jewelry. They must take into account the proportions of the human body, the way that fabric will drape, and the way that light will reflect off of the surface of the clothing.
Cooks use mathematics every time they create a new recipe. They must be able to measure the ingredients, calculate the correct proportions, and determine the cooking times.
Many sports require the use of mathematics. Football players use mathematical concepts such as geometry to plan their plays, while baseball players use statistics to analyze their performance and to predict the outcome of games.
Many games, both video and board, require the use of mathematics. Games such as chess and Go are based entirely on mathematical concepts, while other games such as Monopoly and Scrabble use mathematics to keep score.
Doctors and other medical professionals use mathematics to diagnose and treat diseases. They use statistics to analyze data, to develop new treatments, and to predict the course of diseases.
Economists use mathematics to study the behavior of markets and to predict the effects of economic policies. They use statistical techniques to analyze data, to develop economic models, and to test economic theories.
Psychologists use mathematics to study the human mind. They use statistical techniques to analyze data, to develop psychological models, and to test psychological theories.Posted on Jan 13, 2023, in Personal Finance
