Patterns
Every time you look at something, hear something, touch something, smell something, or taste something, your brain collects a little information about the world around you. People deal with that information by finding patterns. To define and describe the patterns we see in nature, humans invented a special language -- math -- the language of patterns. With computers, finding, creating and studying patterns with math has become faster and easier than ever -- opening up whole worlds to explore!

Smell
The human sense of smell helps us interpret our environment and react to the things around us by letting us know when new smells are close-by. Other animals, like dogs, use their sense of smell even more than we do. Noses receive a smell, then the olfactory part of the brain decodes the many messages it gets, and lets you know that, yes, your feet are truly smelly.
