Who needs Algebra or Geometry in everyday life anyways?

This is a fair question, and a common concern we hear from students and parents alike. Students who are struggling with math homework sometimes can’t justify why they’re spending time and effort on a seemingly useless subject.

The reality is, even if we are not consciously doing math in our day-to-day work, we are constantly using math concepts without realizing it.

Drive a car? Then you do algebra and elementary calculus every time you decide whether to rush that yellow light at the intersection or brake to a full stop. In fact, if you are stuck in traffic and evaluating alternative routes to your office and whether they will get you there on time, you are doing probability calculations along with algebra.

Work in sales? Within 5 seconds of meeting a potential customer, you are applying complex mathematical models based on probability theory to assess whether you can close the deal or if your time is better spent focusing on the next potential customer.

Stay-at-home-parents: guess what? You do more math calculations daily than your spouse working in office! You use calculus (yes – THAT calculus that you hated) to determine whether you have enough time to clean the linen closet and vacuum the house while the meatloaf is getting ready in the oven – and you have to rush out to pick up the kids from the bus-stop!
