There is a reason why math is included in the three most basic subjects of education. Because together with languages and science, math will actually help you survive life. And we’re not talking about being kidnapped by some kind of math mafia who’ll hold your family hostage if you don’t get the value of “x”. We’re talking about measuring cups in baking, counting money, calculating distance, geometry in carpentry, knowing how old you are, and knowing how much water you need to drink every day.
But what about those people who can’t even put one and one together? Doing the math, it’s pretty surprising how these people survived this long. Good thing calculators are invented because they shouldn’t leave home without one.
