Why learn math? 2009-04-01
From Uno:
I got myself in a lot of trouble today. I got into an argument in school with my math teacher because while learning geometry I said that this was useless.
I don't understand why I need to learn algebra, geometry & trigonometry. I don't see how we use this in real life and it is almost like my teachers don't know either. They say I have to learn it because... I don't think that is a good enough answer. The only way I don't get suspended is if I can come up with real world applications of why we learn math.

I need help... I am already in deep trouble with my parents. Any resources on how learning a proof is used in real life?
