Math in Real Life: Table of Contents

By far the most common question that I have been asked over the years regarding mathematics has been, ”When am I going to use math in real life?” That is, at least, the way I choose to perceive it. Unfortunately, more often than not, this question has come my way in the form of the following absurd absolute statement, “I’m never going to use this in real life!”

This erroneous perception of math’s practical usage has been the most prevalent problem in our education system, and by addressing it, the beauty of mathematics and its relevance reveals itself. Information gets absorbed faster. The details get scrutinized and people begin to recognize the occasions for which they have, can, and are already using math in their own lives.

This is the ultimate purpose of this section, to apply what we have learned from studying The Language of Mathematics to enhance our lives.
