The topic of today’s post is **mathematical functions**. Functions are such a fundamental part of mathematics that you’re certain to encounter them almost everywhere.

Recently, I started a small series on numbers and arithmetic, in order to begin exploring the intuition of basic mathematical concepts that most of us take for granted. And these concepts themselves are the building blocks of more advanced concepts, including more advanced concepts in probability theory.

But to fully understand them, we also need to know the details and intuition of some general mathematical tools which we’re going to rely on along the way. Well, functions are first in line!
