Ursula K. Le Guin
“If a book were written all in numbers, it would be true. It would be just. Nothing said in words ever came out quite even. Things in words got twisted and ran together, instead of staying straight and fitting together. But underneath the words, at the center, like the center of the Square, it all came out even. Everything could change, yet nothing would be lost. If you saw the numbers you could see that, the balance, the pattern. You saw the foundations of the world. And they were solid.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed: An Ambiguous Utopia

Tom Stoppard
“Carnal embrace is sexual congress, which is the insertion of the male genital organ into the female genital organ for purposes of procreation and pleasure. Fermat’s last theorem, by contrast, asserts that when x, y and z are whole numbers each raised to power of n, the sum of the first two can never equal the third when n is greater than 2.”
Tom Stoppard, Arcadia

Ian McEwan
“Revenge may be exacted a hundred times over in one sleepless night. The impulse, the dreaming intention, is human, normal, and we should forgive ourselves. But the raised hand, the actual violent enactment, is cursed. The maths says so. There’ll be no reversion to the status quo ante, no balm, no sweet relief, or none that lasts. Only a second crime. Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves, Confucius said. Revenge unstitches a civilisation. It’s a reversion to constant, visceral fear.”
Ian McEwan, Nutshell

“On a plaque attached to the NASA deep space probe we [human beings] are described in symbols for the benefit of any aliens who might meet the spacecraft as “bilaterly symmetrical, sexually differentiated bipeds, located on one of the outer spiral arms of the Milky Way, capable of recognising the prime numbers and moved by one extraordinary quality that lasts longer than all our other urges—curiosity.”
david wells

Alexandre Grothendieck
“If there is one thing in mathematics that fascinates me more than anything else (and doubtless always has), it is neither ‘number’ nor ‘size,’ but always form.”
Alexander Grothendieck

“Same as you, Arthur. I hitched a ride. After all, with a degree in maths and another in astrophysics it was either that or back to the dole queue on Monday. Sorry I missed the Wednesday lunch date, but I was in a black hole all morning.”
Douglas Adams, The Original Hitchhiker Radio Scripts

Israelmore Ayivor
“Life is a linear equation in which you can't cross multiply! If you think you can do it, you can do it. If you think you can't do it, you can't do it. It's a simple formula!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

“I can't multiply myself out of a paper bag. But when it comes to roots, I'm your man.”
Jerry Newport

“Be on the right side of the equation”

“Solution Bank and Education is always a primary concern for people all over the world. There are many indifferent skills that people learn through life. Some of them are more relevant than others, depending on their specific profession. In this case, we are talking about the importance of mathematics in life.

Today, we will talk about the benefits that come from the use of mathematics in life. We are also going to mention the importance of the use of a good solution bank database.

Mathematics is part of everything that we do in life.
Being good with numbers is not only valuable for pass academic tests. There is a reason why mathematics is so essential during our academic journey. The use of mathematics and the science of mathematics is essential in our lives.

Mathematics has been crucial for our evolution, and everything about how we have evolved ties up with numbers. It is thanks to that evolution that we have managed to achieve outstanding results in every aspect of life.

When people are good with numbers, they can solve any problems without relying on calculators on their smartphones. Not only that but being good at mathematics can help you decide if a business proposal is good for you.

Quick thinking about numbers is going to be super important in many scenarios. You do not want to ask people to let you check a calculator when a negotiation is taking place. The one thing that people want to do is ensure that they can have the skills to run numbers in their head.

The value of great resources
Understanding mathematics and practicing the complexities of this science is essential for the best possible results. This is the reason why the use of solution bank material is so important.

One of the hardest things for people who are trying to learn mathematics is to understand the reasons behind a problem or a challenge. There are many cases when math becomes too difficult because of a lack of resources for learning.

This is why the solution banks are so great for this purpose. They can make things much easier for anyone that is looking to achieve optimal results. The best thing to ensure that things work out as expected is to have suitable material for your studies.

Many times people have mentioned that one of the main things that separate success from failure is the resources. This means that those preparing themselves and honing their skills with the right kind of resources will always have the upper hand.

The popularity of solution banks has grown immensely.
This is a clear indicator that this kind of material is beneficial to people. That is a very relevant thing to say because the availability of these solution bank databases can be a huge advantage.

The main thing that many people who excel at mathematics are doing is practicing with the right resources. This can be difficult for those who don’t know where to find those resources, but once they do, things become much more accessible.

When someone feels that their mathematics is not on point, it can be hard to achieve the results they want. With that said, with the right kind of resources, things can be completely changed and made much better.

The way that people work when it comes to education is always going to be relevant. The main thing to consider is that it can be hard to make progress without proper focus on the correct type of studies. This is the type of discipline that can be very useful.

Handling this the best possible way means being able to make use of the best material. This does speed up the process of handling mathematics and understanding them at a deeper level.

The importance of an excellent academic performance
People who seek tutoring for math are doing the right thing because they want to excel. Academic performance is going to be an excellent way for people to achieve optimal results in their careers.”

M.J. O'Farrell
“Rebecca Gleeson (an everyday schoolgirl on her way to school on the Monday morning eight o’clock train.) The Kingdom of Nought is a time tale legacy: accompanying her on the train Rebecca’s arch nemeses Rona Chadwick, the school bully. Rebecca a fan of poetry and fairy tales. “Tales of kindness and friendship.” She would say to herself. Rebecca was a reader of wonderful books that have a cult following. Unknown to Rebecca far away at the start of the universe dark and evil forces start to unbalance the natural order of day and night, good and evil. Weird things begin to happen as both Rebecca and Rona are transported back in time to The Kingdom of Nought to reinstate the benevolent balance within the kingdom. The adventure for the schoolgirls starts out strange and gets stranger, in the best way possible. Their meeting with the witch Sycorax is as creepy and evocative as you’d hope. The story combines mathematical realism with fantasy, blurring the edges in a way that high-lights that place where stories and real life convene, where magic contains truth. As you open the book and turn the pages you enter a strange place out-side time with amazing creatures and spectacular landscapes. An extremely addictive story that will take you to a magical place with a most unusual conclusion.”
M.J. O'Farrell, The Kingdom of Nought

“Where are we going? A place, a point, or around in a complete circle?" asked the Christmas beetle in a soft whisper.”
