IMPORTANCE OF MATHEMATICS IN OUR DAILY LIFE - PART 1
1. Learning math is good for your
conducted by Dr.
Tanya Evans of Stanford University indicates that children who know
math are able to recruit certain brain regions more reliably, and have greater
gray matter volume in those regions, than those who perform more poorly in
math. The brain regions involved in higher math skills in high-performing
children were associated with various cognitive tasks involving visual
attention and decision-making. While correlation may not imply causation,
this study indicates that the same brain regions that help you do math are
recruited in decision-making and attentional processes.
2. Math Helps You with Your Finances
is also helpful with your finance. With the help of math, you can easily make
your financial budget. You can calculate how much money you have and how you
can spend your money. Almost every single human in the world uses math for
their finance. The salaried person uses math to calculate their expenses and
salaries. On the other hand, businessmen use math to calculate their profits
and loss. They also use it to calculate their loans and many more. It
highlights the importance of business mathematics and also plays a crucial role
in business accounting.
3. Math improves problem-solving skills
first, classic math problems like Johnny bringing home 42 watermelons and
returning 13 of them can just seem a silly exercise. But all those math word
problems our children solve really do improve their problem solving
problems teach kids how to pull out the important information and then
manipulate it to find a solution.
on, complex life problems take the place of workbooks, but problem-solving
still happens the same way. When students understand algorithms and problems
more deeply, they can decode the facts and more easily solve the issue.
Real-life solutions are found with math and logic.
is applied in various fields and
disciplines, i.e., mathematical concepts and procedures are used to solve
problems in science, engineering, economics.
