Mathematics is the universal language of our environment, helping mankind explain and create within it for thousands of years. From playing games to playing music, maths is vital to helping students fine tune their creativity and turn their dreams into reality.
Potential career paths and further study
Ask any contractor or construction worker - they'll tell you just how important math is when it comes to building anything. To create something of lasting value out of raw materials requires creativity, the right set of tools, and a broad range of mathematics.
Figuring the total amount of concrete needed for a slab; accurately measuring lengths, widths, and angles; and estimating project costs are just a few of the many cases in which math is necessary for real-life home improvement projects.
Some students may say they don't plan on working in construction. While this may be true, many will own a home at some point in their life. Having the ability to do minor home improvements will save a lot of money and headache. Armed with math, these homeowners will also know how to check construction and project estimates, ensuring they're getting the best value.
