pythagoras - “Why do we need to study math.”

Has your children asked this question?

“Why do we need to study math.”


Have you heard these statements?

“Math is stupid!”

“I am not going to use math when I am out of school.”

“I am not going to be an engineer so I don’t need math.”

If this has not happened to you yet, hang on because it is coming.  There is just something about math that children (and us) have difficulty wrapping their (our) brains around.

Many times, there seems no reason why we should bother with math.  However, we use math in so many areas of our lives and in most cases are not even aware of it.

As I was looking around the internet to find out why we should study math, I came across this great website.  Dr. Math has a page dedicated to answering those why study math questions.  You will want to bookmark the website.  You will then be ready when your children ask the famous question, “Why should we study math.”
