Read more about this on Questia. mathematics, deductive study of numbers, geometry, and various abstract constructs, or structures; the latter often "abstract" the features common to several models derived from the empirical, or applied, sciences, although many emerge from purely mathematical or logical considerations. On this site you will find all sorts of things related to Mathematics and its teaching. There will be thoughts and ideas posted on a semi regular basis. There will be resources that I have written and used as a Maths teacher at various times over the last 30 years. The more interesting of these.
