### Mathematics, a discovery or an invention? (by Hiya Ganju)

Is mathematics an invention or

discovery? I believe that mathematics is in reality, an invention based

discovery, meaning it is more of an invention. Mathematics is a tool used by

humans to record, describe and explain discoveries about nature. Mathematicians

have the resources and materials which have been discovered, but they invent the

theories and formulas themselves. You can’t look around, search or discover

maths because all the elements that make it up and everything that involves it,

already exists. Maths is a language which has been invented. The truth is that

we need to create and invent our own ways to prove why something is true

mathematically. In order to understand the environment, its artistic instincts

and to engage in absorbing intellectual activity from the human perspective,

the concepts, axioms and theorems established, have been created by

mathematicians. From Pythagoras’ Theorem, to Newton’s Universal Law of

Gravitation, to Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, we can conclude that humans

have created the most intelligent and beautiful concepts in mathematics. Maths

cannot be found, searched for or discovered, it requires to be resolved using

an invented method in the form of a theorem, formula or simply a process.
