As we speak, students are sitting in their various math classes tapping their fingers impatiently, daydreaming and complaining aloud "I'm not going to use this stuff ever again in life!" They might be correct when it comes to their specific responsibilities in the workplace, but not how they accomplish these responsibilities. Sure, they might never graph linear equations, determine slope and y-intercept or solve radical equations in a workday, but the cool math skills they acquired while completing these problems will last a lifetime.Math shows you that you can reach a desirable result if you a follow a certain series of steps in a particular order, and complete each step without making an error. If you find an error in your process, you can start over, making sure to alter your methods at the moment you messed up the first time. Life doesn't allow you to redo anything most of the time, but when it comes to stuff you do over and over on a consistent basis, you're allowed to change things in between attempts.For instance, consider what you do every morning to get ready for work or school. If your process consists of waking up, getting ready, having breakfast and going to work, you must complete each step successfully to develop a routine. If you miss one step, your entire process will be thrown out of sync, compromising your chances of satisfactorily getting everything else done. In the case of waking up, sleeping in would result in less time to get ready, easy breakfast, and go to work, which could lead to you being late. The same goes for math problems.
