This is one subject that does not go away once graduation is over. It is a subject that everyone is faced with on a daily basis. One may not realize it, but everyday math is out there, whether it is at the local grocery store or in the classroom. Keep the subject fresh in the mind, and the person will succeed in life.
Nowadays, a lot of people are too dependent on calculators. Maybe because when they were young, they find math boring. We just need to teach our kids interesting and fun way in dealing with math. Math can be fun especially when you look at math in a completely different way.
