Mathematicians study quantity, structure, space, and change, seek out patterns, formulating new conjectures, and establishing truth(s) by rigorous deduction from appropriately chosen axioms and definitions. The Golden Ratio, regarded as a aesthetically pleasing relationship, was first described by ancient Egyptian and Greek mathematicians, and manifested in designs for monuments.
Some people suffer from math anxiety which may be related to dyscalculia (Greek/Latin: counting badly) a problem with basic sense of number and quantity, and difficulty with rote math facts. Often people with this condition can understand very complex mathematical concepts and principles but have difficulty retrieving basic math facts involving addition and subtraction.
The top award for Mathematics is considered to be the International Medal for Outstanding Discoveries in Mathematics, commonly known as the Fields Medal named after Canadian mathematician John Charles Fields.
