Perhaps I should take a different tack....

I have never, and I've been teaching for a while now, had kids ask this
question when they were interested in the topic of the day. Noone ever
says "wow, that's really cool - but what's it good for?"

My pet theory is that when kids say "Is this important?" what they are
really asking is "Is it a problem that I don't find this interesting at

Just a theory...
