Mathematics Life

Thus, in the first years of pertaining to school life the contact with the numbers has a stronger and constant presence, and in this process of learning it attributes to a formal and educative value and a material and practical value. The formal value was recognized in the antiquity, where the number was the essence of the universe in accordance with Pitgoras.
