What is mathematics?

This page is part of the FMathL - Formal mathematical language web site at http://www.mat.univie.ac.at/~neum/FMathL.html

Mathematics is the science and art of precise concepts and their relations.

So mathematics plays an important role wherever in our culture precise concepts are needed or useful.

Mathematics is important in many aspects of human life, precisely because it is the science and art of precise concepts.
