Why study mathematics? This has an obvious answer for those planning on becoming an engineer, an architect, or a doctor. But perhaps the most important reason is because the study of mathematics builds problem solving skills. All citizens need to know how to reason and analytically think through a problem. The habits of mind associated with learning mathematics trains our brains to seek solutions in a logical way. As our society becomes increasingly technology dependent, this need is even more evident.
