RE: why do we need math?

Math helps people like scientists and engineers. Pure math has little use in daily life for the average person outside simple addition subtraction multiplication and division. Don’t need to teach hire me at the someone who’s not going to study any of the sciences. Schools waste a hell of a lot of time teaching math. They should be teaching life skills like how to write a check, nutrition and how to cook for yourself, how to rent an apartment, or to buy a house, how to buy a car, how to start your own business, and how to be a civilized human being, then how to determine what candidate to vote for.
