## IntroductionEdit

**Mathematics** studies quantity, space, structure, and change. Mathematicians make new conjectures, find mathematical truths through rigorous deduction, and look for patterns in nature, through the use of axioms and definitions. Among mathematicians, there is debate as to whether mathematical objects such as numbers naturally exist or whether they are human inventions.
