Bishop also emphasizes the rich variety of mathematical thinking worldwide: there are hundreds of different counting systems to be found now, using different symbols, objects and materials. Maths is found everywhere in life. Even though there might be many different symbols all around the world, but their functions and calculations remain the same. Maths is very valuable in our life. We use maths everyday for many different areas of knowledge. Maths is there to help us calculating things, and many areas of knowledge involve calculating. Thus, applied mathematics is considered to be very valuable in the world. However, pure mathematics is so important in building axioms for the applied mathematics. Without pure formula or number theory, we don’t understand how maths is used in its application to the
