Why math is important

Why math is important in life? We could answer this question by quoting something Galileo said in the 17th century, "the universe is written in the language of mathematics." Indeed, math is all around us, especially in this day and age. However, you may need some specific reasons why math is important and why you should bother learning it. Among many others, see 15 reasons below.

  • Without a solid knowledge of math, men would have never succeeded in taking a rocket all the way to the moon and back to the earth.
  • Ever wondered how insurance companies are able to pay billions and billions of dollars to insurers and still stay in business? Math is the genius behind all that and this is the job of actuaries.
  • Math can help you become a logical thinker and as a result you become smarter.
  • Strong Knowledge of math can help you become a good lawyer. This one may not be obvious, but lawyers make use of logical analysis often. Since math helps you to think logically, you may find it easier to solve cases related to crimes.
