Math – A Kid’s Perspective

My son wrote an essay on math the other day. I thought I’d reproduce it here. You can think of him, therefore, as my first ‘guest blogger’. I’ve edited it only very slightly.

“Math is everywhere – in foods, shops, cars, airports, everywhere. Math is essential to life but some people hate doing math. Today I am going to give you three or two reasons why you should learn math.

Firstly, math is needed for time. Wouldn’t it be dreadful if all your guests came to your party at totally different times? Secondly, without math you wouldn’t know when things expire. It would taste so disgusting to drink sour milk, wouldn’t it?

Therefore, I conclude that math is very essential to life.”
