Maths Plays an Important Role in our Technologically Advanced World!

by Judy (follow)
Why does your child need maths?

Maths is the language of the universe! Its is all around us and unavoidable. Children need a good understanding of maths concepts so that they can thrive in their every day life, not just for their future careers! Now more than ever this world is constantly advancing and changing in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) which requires critical mastery of mathematics skills. Moreover, even other subject areas require maths such as music, art and business studies.

Here are some everyday practical ways that maths is apart of our lives:

Managing Money: Counting money, algebra helps with finances, principal and interest help with loans, earning, saving etc.

Playing Sports: sports scores and statistics. Geometry and trigonometry help us find the best way to hit a baseball or make a basket.

Eating Healthy: counting calories and grams of carbs or fats. Using proportions and ratios when we double or halve a recipe or an ingredient.

Enjoying Music: Music is fundamentally mathematical. Our brains appreciate pitch, chords, balance and so on through an unconscious mathematical understanding.

Creating/Enjoying Art: From Leonardo Da Vinci to gorgeous tile mosaics in medieval Islamic buildings, art and maths have always been inextricably intertwined.

Parents, play an important role in helping children recognize and practice maths in their daily lives. It starts by recognizing that maths is everywhere, all the time, and that “mathing” with your child is just as important as reading with them. Rather than avoid maths, children who learn to embrace maths will have a future of unlimited possibility.
