IMPORTANCE OF MATHEMATICS IN OUR DAILY LIFE - PART 2

With a knowledge of math, for example, you can quickly deduce that a half-cup of flour is the same thing as eight tablespoons of flour.  This can prove handy if you find that your half-cup measure is missing.  Likewise, if you are cooking from a recipe that serves 4 people, but you need to feed 8 people, your math skills tell you that you can simply double all of the necessary ingredients.  Without math, you may not have enough food (or have too much food) to feed your guests…

6. Great career options

Mathematics offers a great career opportunity for students. In most careers, employers want to hire employees who can solve complex problems. If you are good at math and have a keen ability to solve complex problems, you are at the top of applying for many jobs. Finance analysis and cost estimation are part of every business.

7. Math supports logical reasoning and analytical thinking

A strong understanding of math concepts means more than just number sense. It helps us see the pathways to a solution. Equations and word problems need to be examined before determining the best method for solving them. And in many cases, there’s more than one way to get to the right answer.

It’s no surprise that logical reasoning and analytical thinking improve alongside math skills. Logic skills are necessary at all levels of mathematical education.
