I love math, and I think everybody should! Some say that math is too abstract for the real world, that math is something taught at school that won't be used in real life. I disagree. The power of math comes from its abstractness! 2 + 2 = 4 whether If we're talking about points in a basketball game or dollars in your piggy bank. Sure the numbers mean nothing by themselves, but there are infinite possibilities for what the numbers can represent. This is why when we learn math, we are secretly learning a lot more than expected. Most people would be surprised that trigonometry teaches us how to tune a guitar. Calculus tells us how hard we need to step on our brakes. Chef's know that Algebra holds the secret to perfect recipes. The world of sports revolves around player statistics. Math does more than tell us how much to tip our waiters, it helps us understand the entire universe. The more we practice this universal subject, the more see it in our everyday lives, and in turn are able to apply the knowledge and wisdom we gained in math class.
