Mathematics is a very basic subject in the sense that it stands at the basis of all sciences, and it can be argued that a good training in mathematics enhances all intellectual activity in general. Most of the population, while they may never explicitly use mathematics in their everyday lives, do use their reasoning power, and the best way to strengthen that is through a solid mathematical training. The benefits of a mathematical training are manifold. Aside from the obvious careers that are available, mathematical training develops a flexible mind and an ability to quickly and efficiently learn new things and solve diverse problems that arise in all walks of life.
