Mathematics Awareness Month 2006
The annual "Mathematics Awareness Week", begun in 1986 with the following statement from President Ronald Regan:
The event has since been extended to a full month to provide the mathematical sciences community the opportunity of promoting the importance and versatility of mathematics and its relationship to our daily lives. Although the Math Awareness began in America, it is beginning to be celebrated on an international level.
Each year a theme is selected and participation in mathematical activities occurs throughout schools, communities, businesses and even at home. This year the theme is "Mathematics and the Cosmos."
