Subject: Who uses functions almost everyday?

Why an 9th grade student needs to learn functions? (that's not the biggest Q anyway)Does anybody use functions everyday or simply what are functions for? What is the usage of functions in everydays life? f(x)= f(y) so what?... what big diffrence does this make in everyday life? Does anyone use functions everyday instead of maths teachers? These kind of information is not found in books or any site... I've found a little bit of information in some of the threads but I need a better source... I will be absolutely delighted to hear from anyone by e-mail... Berk Turgay Istanbul,Turkey
