TLCM: The language called Mathematics

TLCM: The language called Mathematics
Rishi Sunak, the UK Prime Minister, recently made a controversial suggestion that all UK students should learn Maths till 18 years of age:
I am proposing a subset (a mathematical concept) of that vision to make it possible for everyone who wants to learn Mathematics to be able to do so, with the use of AI powered pedagogies. This is especially relevant in India because many students wanting to learn Maths at the 11th and 12th are denied so, because they did not score well enough in Maths at their 10th Board examinations.
Mathematics is our best tool for describing how the world works. This unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics is both an asset and a curse. It’s an asset as it generates interest in the subject to have key problems solved. But it’s a curse because it leads people to expect all math to have obvious immediate applications.
The purpose of this weeklong WhatsApp course is to develop an interest in the subject and kindle the desire to know more about Mathematics. 
The phrase “ Mathematics is a language” was used by John Willard Gibbs, a very distinguished American Scientist. He was of course echoing what Galileo had said hundreds of years earlier “ Nature is written in mathematical language”.
