It is Mathematics , the only language shared by all human beings and language of symbols.

Pi is still 3.14159, regardless of what country you are in . Adding up the cost of a basket full of groceries involves the same math process regardless of whether the total is expressed in dollars, yen or rupees. With this universal language, all of us, no matter what our unit of exchange, are likely to arrive at math results the same way.

All of us possess the ability to be " literate" in the shared language of math. The math literacy is called numeracy, and it is this shared language of numbers that connects us with people across continents and through time. It is what links ancient scholars and medieval merchants, astronauts and artists peasants and presidents

With this language we can explain

the mysteries of the universe or secrets of DNA.

We can understand the forces of planetary motion

Discover cures for catastrophic diseases

calculate the distance from any city of America to any city of India

We can build computers and transfer information across the globe.

We can save money for retirement

So math is not just for calculus majors. It is for all of us.

It is not just calculating difficult equations. It is about making better decisions and , hopefully leading richer, fuller lives.

Mathematics is Universal by the following quotes

*"I bow to that glorious Lord of the Jainas, who as the shining lamp of the know-ledge of numbers made to shine whole of the universe",*said Mahaviracharya in Ganita Sara Sangraha.

The man ignorant of mathematics will be increasingly limited in his grasp of the main forces of civilization. ~John Kemeny

Mathematics is the gateway and the key to other sciences- Roger Bacon
