Math! What is it good for?

While not the most pleasant memory for some, High School math class is one of the perfect places you can learn the importance of Wisdom. Don’t get confused, that doesn’t mean that the math you learn in high school is one of those bits of wisdom you need all your life (unless you’re an architect or mathematician), just that the way you learn there is something you can… um… learn from.

Most Maths require the learner to not only understand the basic rules, but also to memorize and understand a formula or two. A formula is a symbolic representation of a rule of math, a simpler way to remember how the basics work.

This is really what all wisdom should be- a building block of proven fact that allows us to make decisions faster. So whether or not your Math teacher looked like Ben Stein or if you use the Pythagorean Theorem on a daily basis- you learned something useful in Math class.
