As most students know, while almost 70 percent of the earth is covered in water, only 2.5 percent of it is fresh. The greater portion of this too is inaccessible as it is in the form of glaciers and snow fields. This leaves the 7 billion people living on the planet with a mere 1 percent of the world’s relatively small freshwater supply. It thus behoves those of us who are fortunate enough to have access to clean water to make the most of it.

In Mathematics, a ratio compares values. In other words, a ratio says how much of one thing there is compared to another. For example, if we have 3 blue balls and 1 red ball, we say that the ratio of blue balls to red is 3:1. Over two thousand years ago, the Greek mathematician Euclid, also known as the Father of Geometry, in his book Elements, defined what he termed the ‘extreme and mean ratio’. Over the years, this ratio has come to be known as the ‘Golden Ratio’ and as the ‘Divine Proportion’. The German mathematician and astronomer Johannes Kepler, best known for his laws of planetary motion, stated that “Geometry has two great treasures; one is the Theorem of Pythagoras; the other, the division of a line into extreme and mean ratio. The first we may compare to a measure of gold, the second we may name a precious jewel.” Why all this fuss over a mere ratio? What was so “golden” or “divine” about it?

Society consists of multiple social groups, norms, behaviors, cultures, and religions that are interrelated and interdependent on each other and come together to help the overall functioning of society as a whole.

However, these social interactions and relationships can be based on a variety of behaviors and influences. Conformity is one such social influence involving a change in belief or behavior of an individual in order to fit in with a larger group.

I decided to write this essay to help people become open to learning math by understanding what math is all about. [Hidden Agenda: Since I am a high school math teacher, this essay allows me to spend more time teaching mathematical techniques instead of talking about this during class.]
