Why am I learning Maths when I am not going to use it in everyday life?

Sri Rama Chaitanya Kolluri
01/04/2020 0 0

A lot of students ask this question with a sense of boredom and servitude, "Why to study math if I can't use it ?". The answer to the question is pretty simple. You do use it in everyday life. Most of the material happiness surrounding us is a result of the involvement of math. But most of us are either not told these facts or are just shrugged off by teachers.
Are you studying probability right now, because what you are learning at the moment might look astonishingly simple and irrelevant to everyday life. Well, the answer is that you are acquiring the "ABCD" of probability in class VIII and building complexity to class XII so that you can use it in real life. How? There are plenty of videos which you avail on the internet on the topic-How are search operations at sea conducted?
This video talks about how conditional probability learnt in class XII, and a bit of statistics helps rescue operations at sea. But if in class VIII, if you were told that probability is used in rescue operations, you would merely laugh-how learning about tossing a coin or picking a card help a rescue operation?
Hence, you are first taught to calculate simple probabilities till class X before you are shown complex computations of the same topic in class XI and XII. You had to learn the English alphabet first to write sentences, right? None of us was born speaking sentences!!!!
So the next time you think why to learn Maths, remember that just like the above example, there is an application of this somewhere.
