The Importance of Mathematics

Over at Math-Blog there's a post with a lecture from Timothy Gowers about the importance of mathematics, not simply in terms of practical application but also in terms of culture. It's fantastic and will give you an itch to start colouring nodes and play with prime numbers even if you don't think you're a math person.

Pick a time when the kids are gone or asleep and grab some chocolate, a cup of tea and listen. You'll enjoy it.
