You’d be surprised at how important math is for you to accomplish all the simple things you do every day. Going to the grocery store and trying to buy things would be impossible if you didn’t know math. Basic math is involved with the cost and payment, but on a bigger scale, math helps you figure out what the best deal really is for the things you’re buying. For instance, the advertised “value pack” might actually be more expensive than just buying the items separately, but you wouldn’t know this unless you could calculate the price difference. Math is even involved when driving to a new place or maybe deciding the most efficient way to pick all your friends up. Measuring the distance and time it would take you to drive the different routes all requires math. So even if you don’t plan on going into a career involving math, it’s still a part of everyday life.
