MATHEMATICS IMPORTANCE IN OUR LIFE

Contemporary life demands requirement to have good mathematical knowledge. Mathematics is important for life and supports all-round personal development. Mathematics significantly influences pupils and students education both in special branch (mathematical knowledge) and in branch of moral education.

We can find mathematical application in nature, technique, architecture, machinery, building industry, in banking sector, in research, cartography etc. There are very interesting applications in genetics and in using mathematics in nature. Statistical methods are used in genetics at genetics hypothesis testing. Using mathematics we can create statistical description of quantitative relations. When we process research data we need arithmetical diameter, scattering, standard deviation etc.

In our paper we focus on mathematical using in human life. Our aim is to demonstrate that mathematics is not only base in technical branch but some mathematical theories are applicated in nature. Mathematics is a base of research methods.

We can develop pupils’ interest in mathematics with help of quality education, because mathematics is a part of our daily routine and it influences the quality of our life and quality of our professional orientation.

We carried out a research with the aid of questionnaire to find out the interest in mathematics at pupils. We sent questionnaires to selected schools. The questionnaire consists of 11 questions. Four questions were closed a seven were open. Our goal was to increase the pupil´s interests in mathematics. We wanted to influence professional orientation of pupils’ and students´ in technical interest, which is more useful on the labour market.
