Subject: Re: wide ranging importance of learning math
A common misconception is that students can get by later in life without understanding math -- except for possibly adding a grocery list. This is the most incorrect idea in the spectrum of students' naive ideas. Math is the most important subject in the academic world. It teaches students how to organize their thoughts for solution of problems -- all types of problems not only those of math. What could be more significant in life than that?
