Do we really need Math when we grow up?
When I was growing up, I really did not care for math. At a young age I realized that I must study and practice all the time to truly understand math. Math is a tricky subject like that, if you do not practice it all the time you tend to forget it. I also asked myself one day, ‘Do we really need to have a good foundation of math, and will we need it when we grow up?” When we are older adults, are we going to need Math knowledge in our everyday life, or in our jobs? When I was young, I never thought that you would need Math in any career when you’re an adult. Now I know that I was all wrong. In this paper I will discuss how we need Math in our everyday living, and in certain careers that you might not have thought that math was used.

We as human being need to eat to live and survive. We cannot just go to fast food restaurants and order from the menu all the time, that is to unhealthy. Some time in life, you must learn how to cook. There are many different ways to learn how to cook; if it is not from your Mother then it is for another source like TV, the Inter Net, a cookbook, or a cooking class.

To create dishes with good flavor, consistency, and texture, the various ingredients must have a kind of relationship to one another. For instance, to make cookies that both look and taste like cookies, you need to make sure you use the right amount of each ingredient. Add too much flour and your cookies will be solid as rocks. Add too much salt and they'll taste terrible. All ingredients have relationships to each other in a recipe and are an important concept in cooking. It's also an important math concept. In math, this relationship between 2 quantities is called a ratio. If a recipe calls for 1 egg and 2 cups of flour, the relationship of eggs to cups of flour is 1 to 2. In mathematical language, that relationship can be written in two ways: 1/2 or...

...development is achieved through intuition, manipulating objects, and all forms of logical thought.
What are we math? We used to be able to solve practical problems and daily life, understand the science, studying economics and an essential thing is that it is very supportive and helps to develop the mind.
In recent years, several teachers and educators have tried to find an explanation to why mathematics has become one of the materials with the lowest...

...dramatic consequences, as illustrated by the use of friction created by rubbing pieces of wood together to start a fire. Kinetic energy is converted to heat whenever motion with friction occurs, for example when a viscous fluid is stirred. Another important consequence of many types of friction can be wear, which may lead to performance degradation and/or damage to components. Friction is a component of the science of tribology.
Friction is not itself a fundamental force but...

WhyMath is Important
When it comes to math, many people have always asked the question, “When will I ever do this again in real life?” and for some it is a hard question to answer, but for me it is simple. You use math everyday and probably do not even realize it. Math has been a part of...

Why is college important to me?
I often dream about becoming a successful business owner of my own restaurant “T. C’s Jamaican Restaurant, but to attain this goal I must acquire a college education that teaches me how to become the best manager in that industry.
Education is important to me because coming from a family of 8 in Jamaica, I was the only one who went to college and for my brothers and sisters to see that I could reach my goal in life...

...This is the heart of today’s defence-policy challenge. To understand
these questions, we need to ensure we understand Australia’s motivations. In
this chapter therefore, I want to contribute to our current debates by looking
back; first at how and why we came to adopt the ‘defence of Australia’ policies
in the 1970s and 1980s, then at the changes in our strategic environment in the
1990s, and finally at the way our strategic policy has evolved in response. All
these issues...

My Math Experience
When I was younger math was my favorite subject, it was something that I felt very confident
with. Unlike english, history, and literature, where I had to exert extra effort, math was the only
subject that really came naturally to me. I remember when I was a kid my dad would test me on ...
