IMPORTANCE OF MATHEMATICS IN OUR DAILY LIFE - PART 3
9. Math is all around us and helps us understand the world better.
To live in a mathematically-driven world and not know math is like walking through an art museum with your eyes closed. Learning and appreciating math can help you appreciate things that you would not otherwise notice about the world. In reality, math is everywhere! Don’t believe me? Read on for some examples of math in nature.
10. Every Career Uses Math
There is no profession in the world that doesn’t use math. We know that mathematicians and scientists rely on mathematical principles to perform their basic work. Engineers also use math to perform their daily tasks. From blue-collar factory workers to managerial-level white-collar professionals, everyone uses math in their work.
11. Math may boost emotional health
While this research is still in its early days, what we have seen is promising. The parts of the brain used to solve math problems seem to work together with the parts of the brain that regulate emotions. This suggests that math practice can actually help us cope with difficult situations. In these studies, the better someone was with numerical calculations, the better they were at regulating fear and anger. Strong math skills may even be able to help treat anxiety and depression.
12. Math Helps Us Manage Time
We all depend on time to perform daily activities, and a clock known for showing time is established as per the math calculations. With the help of math, we can easily manage our time and predict the completion time of a particular task. nSuppose we have to go to the office daily and set our time to leave the house at 9 o’clock sharp so that we can reach the office at 9:30 am. If we are familiar with math, we can easily assume the time difference; this way, we can be on time wherever we go.
13. Math Makes Us Sharp Workers
Whatever job we choose requires mathematical skills to do well in the workplace, such as scientists, finance managers, teachers, designers, etc. Every field requires the problem-solving ability to find out solutions to critical issues. Hence, if you know much math, you can efficiently complete all your office tasks.
