From the article...
This holds true for most subjects in the public education system.we should at least be conscious of the possibility that we're putting educational road blocks in front of students without a practical application for them.
I use formulas for calculating power/voltage/etc. The numbers can, however, just be plugged into the computer to figure it out.
Good poll.
You forgot Geometry...I use it for mine. And you misspelled calculus.
Newton's First Law of Motion
Seventeen.How much math do you use in your AFSC?
I like to vector out my space voids to at least 5m.
I use basic algebra. Like if I have to know how many Airmen I need to get the job done, and I know that I only need five to do the work I have to factor in how many it takes to supervise(x) and how many are to lazy to do anything other than surf the net on thier phone(y).
Five Meters of Voided Space.
In finance? We do not really use any math. We just push buttons and hope things work out. If you come in complaining we usually push some more buttons and hope that fixes it. If not, we blame it on a system glitch and keep trying. Eventually you either give up or we find the right combinations of buttons that satisfies you.
