STUDYING MATH
Mathematics builds logic and pattern recognition in the brain. The structure of math helps with organizational and problem-solving skills. By learning basic math skills, students learn to look at an entire problem before attempting to solve it. They learn to state the problem, come up with possible equations or possible ways to solve it, move step by step to come to a conclusion, and lastly, evaluate the final answer.
The philosopher Santayana famously said that "those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it." This doesn't mean that you'd better memorize all those names and dates, but it means that you need to learn the patterns and lessons of history. The lessons and patterns of mathematics are important, too. If all you take from algebra is a comfort with variables and formulas, an ability to interpret graphs and to think logically, and a willingness to use abstraction when you try to solve problems, then you have gained some incredibly useful life skills |
