Austin peer respond

Austin pizzi week 4 discussion response needed

So I am a little on the fence with this question. I believe that you do need some type of math with whatever you do. It might be a little math but its still math. Say you are a nurse, you have to measure doses all the time for you patients. Say you are an architect, you will defiently need math for that for measurements on building. Now if you are in the field of lets say computer tech, you don't really need math for fixing a computer. Thats more like a knowledge then actually math usage. To me math is used for a little of everything and I do enjoy math.

Many students have often asked questions such as: Why do I need to learn about graphing lines, properties, using exponents, solving equations, factoring ….etc…?

Where and when am I going to use it in my life?

Explain your position on why it is/is not important to learn mathematical content you may never use.

Include examples to support your reasoning in essay format. 

My thought about the matter

Mathematics is taught in all courses because it serves as the central subjects in human being. Mathematics encourages thinking logically, creates mental rigor and effectively builds mental discipline. Additionally, Mathematics provides the basic knowledge in understanding other science and artistic courses. it may however seem crazy when student is learning some mathematical concepts such as graphing lines, factoring, solving equations and using exponents but they serve a great purpose in the career and personal life of an individual (Ningsih E. F., & Retnowati, E, 2020)

Graphing lines are used in learning and solving different mathematical problems using graphical methods. It enables the learner to trace and study changes over a long and short period of time as well as comparing changes that occur at the same period of time. They are majorly used to track small changes of events. Use of exponents enables people express otherwise tedious mathematical numbers in a simpler form hence saving time hence energy. Learning to solve equations enables students to solve other mathematical problems. Equations develop a sharp brain for a student that help their mathematical life. Factoring serves as an important tool in solving mathematical quadratic equations. It is used to solve complicated mathematical expressions by grouping similar expressions in brackets and solving them independently (Ningsih E. F., & Retnowati, E, 2020)

Graphing lines and factoring are applied in many real-life situations. Graphical lines are use in evaluating changes over a particular period of time.  Some of the professional fields where graphical lines are applied are medicine and pharmacy, research processes and economics analysis. In medicine. In personal life graphical skills are used to evaluating changes over time and this makes you take action over the noted changes with immediate effect. Factoring enables an individual to solve many real-life problems in life at the same time (Ningsih E. F., & Retnowati, E, 2020)

 It is applied in dividing something equally, comparing prices, making calculations during travel and exchanging money. These are examples on the importance of these mathematical concepts Learning mathematical concepts is important. Although some concept may seem to be useless in the course work, they develop a sharp brain that enables the learner solve other real-life situations.  These mathematical concepts help prevent chaos and bring orderliness. These concepts natures important qualities in human life. These qualities include effective communication, problem solving ability, critical thinking, spatial thinking, creativity and power of reasoning. This is the importance of learning these mathematical concepts that may seem to be useless in real life (Ningsih E. F., & Retnowati, E, 2020)
