He probably needs an answer to the topic question for his studies.
ANSWER: The reason we started using it was to enable network communication between the various networking hardware products of various producers without it mattering which one was produced by who and on what platform. This is possible because the OSI model is a standardisation (ISO 7498-1) which lists the various functions provided by different network protocols into layers on top of each other in a way that the layers above each other can only use functions provided by a sub-layer and can only provide functions for a superior layer. The model clearly specifys how one layer can interact with the other. (this by the way is what we call RFC -- Request for Comments) This way a software of the layer written by one producer could cooperate/communicate with the software of a layer written by a different producer even on two different platforms.

Tips for a great answer:
A Media Access Control address (MAC address) is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on the physical network segment. Logically, MAC addresses are used in the Media Access Control protocol sub-layer of the OSI reference model.
MAC addresses are most often assigned by the manufacturer of a network interface card (NIC) and are stored in its hardware, the card's read-only memory, or some other firmware mechanism. If assigned by the manufacturer, a MAC address usually encodes the manufacturer's registered identification number. It may also be known as an Ethernet hardware address(EHA), hardware address, adapter address, or physical address.
Hope this information will help you.
