A while ago, I told my daughter to learn to like math.
Math is something you will use every day. You will use it in shopping, cooking, dining, calculating what type of space you will have for your furniture placement. You need to know math for your data plan for your smart phone. Math is definitely something that makes your mind work.
Math should come as second nature. Multiplication tables should just be able to pop into your head.
I am sort of dyslexic so math is not easy for me and I definitely need to see a lot of numbers on a page so I may make sense of it but I still agree with the fact that Math is something that you need.
Of course with a smart phone, math is made so the pressure may not be so hard to calculate a tip for your server while you are out.
I was at lunch at the cafeteria with she and her best friend who had chocolate all over her face. I told them both they would need math every day of their lives…. and napkins. Not your sleeves, dears. Napkins.
That is my philosophy = use math and napkins every day.
