You mentioned in an article that potential young scientists needed to learn the language of mathematics You stated that mathematics is the language of logical thought Could you expand on that comment

What I was trying to say is that mathematical expressions are a way to express a logical idea. Many students forget this and then in their eyes, math becomes something abstract that has little use in everyday life. They don't realize that when one thinks about problems, as an engineer or everyday life, they use logic to solve those problems. An engineer or scientist needs to be able to convert common sense and logical ideas in a concise and universally understood form. Mathematics allows us to do this and this helps us to solve engineering and everyday problems. Knowing math is a powerful tool.
