Here are a few of Klara's favourite things about this school subject.
1. Maths has a whole heap of different applications
I love that maths is such a diverse subject and can fall under a broad spectrum of topics. Math is applicable to so many different fields of study and interests. For example, an animator builds frames of images using geometric equations and applies rotations and changes in size through linear algebra.
Many careers marry mathematics with other passions. Although creating animations involves a deep knowledge of mathematics, it involves other passions, such as art and design.
“I think there’s a lot of creativity in mathematics and there’s a lot of problem-solving in arts. There’s more overlap than what people might think,” says Australian mathematician and television presenter, Lily Serna.
