Mathematics maintains multiple purposes

Mathematics is the least appreciated and the most underrated class by high schoolers.

Sure, if you’re going to become a chemical engineer, you won’t need to know how to find the hypotenuse of a triangle, but you will still need math.

In fact, almost every branch of science uses math.

Physics? Most definitely.

Chemistry? You bet your bum it does.

Astronomy? How else are you going to measure all those light years?

Microscopic biology? Seems like a problem to me.

But if you don’t want to be like Charlie Eppes from the greatest TV show ever aired, “Numbers,” then you can stop to think.

“What do I want to do with my life? What am I doing with my life?”

If you even dare to think about something English or history related, than you are off the hook; largely because these fields don’t use loads math on a regular basis.

Take for example the previously stated man and TV show. Charlie was an applied mathematician and a mathematical consultant for the FBI. That’s right, he used math to solve crimes. What of it?

So next time you think when you’ll use math, remember that there are real life Charlie Eppes saving real lives.
