  Math Forum - Key Questions: Public Support of Mathematics
Mathematics provides us with powerful theoretical and computational techniques to advance our understanding of the modern world and societal problems, and to develop and manage the technology industries that are the backbone of our economy.
When mathematics contributes to the understanding of particular social issues (e.g., statistical modeling to develop more accurate census estimates, formulation and interpretation of economic models (inflation, Social Security scenarios, budget models), epidemiology models, ATM security), we need to encourage the media to include this fact in their reporting.
Ironically, this scenario means that the task of representing the value of mathematics to the general public falls disproportionately to the applications community, regarded by many within the profession as the proverbial fl sheep of the family.

 Mathematics
As a language of patterns, mathematics is a means for describing the world in which we live.
All students need a deep understanding of mathematics; for this to occur, rigorous mathematical content must be reorganized, taught, and assessed in a problem-solving environment.
For students to develop this deeper level of understanding, their knowledge must be connected to a variety of ideas and skills across topic areas and grade levels in mathematics, to other subjects taught in school, as well as to situations outside the classroom.

 Support (mathematics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, the support of a real-valued function f on a set X is sometimes defined as the subset of X on which f is nonzero.
In this case, the support of f is defined as the smallest closed subset of X outside of which f is zero.
The topological support is the closure of the set-theoretic support.
