Additional Mathematics is just memorising formula and applying it. i dont see the use of it in real professions, while perhaps being a teacher but otherwise nothing else.

i disagree...doctors and pharmacists need to use numbers to calculate how much medication they are giving...such as converting from one unit to the other....etc

And there is logic behind prescribing medication but do you have logic to support a certain amaths formula like using it for a more useful purpose. I must agree basic mathematics is useful and mathematics such as Principals of Accountancy are used in everyday lives to calculate accounts,but additional mathematics have no useful purpose. But the reason why we are studying Amaths is to teach us the ability to think with guide lines rather than just learning whats on the book itself. So learning amaths is just for the application of brain power to be flexible in how we think to solve problems and not about the content that we will be using. About conversion of units, it did be more on Physics rather than on additional maths.We learn conversion mainly in Physics. 



of course you need basic math it's like saying you need to know how to speak in order to get a job. I think the op is getting at the harder math in high school and college that are for the most part totatlly irrelevant to your future. I dont think that kind of math is necessary but i still gotta learn it b/c you cant change the whole school system to your likings.




what a stupid question obviously u need math to get through life............well maybe for a successful life


Pirating movies and music is illegal but no one said ninjaing it was wrong


maybe some people think it is unnecessary because it is only the basics. yes, there are some things we learn in math we do not really use, but we use the basics almost all the time in out everyday like. heck! numbers are already math. just saying a number is like applying math in your profession or daily life
no not at all...I think most of the subjects that we learn in school aren't going to be used in our future careers what we learn in school is to build our intrest to what we want to become in the future. yes, some jobs do not require certain subject but requires another subject we learnt in school. therefore, what we learnt in school is going to be used in some way or another. 



You need math.Most jobs i say includes math.Say your a construction worker,you obviously need math to measure metallic poles,etc. so if it can fit with other parts from the house.




eh yeah ofcourse it is ??


awwwwwwwwwwhhhhhh yyyyeeeeeeaaaaahhh


yea maths is a impt thing to know. (: it does help in de future.
*n i simply love maths! xD* 

inactive. but will come to check sometimes.

Who needs math to mow lawns? LOL.


I'm scared of not having a thing for curry. D:


^ you do. Don't forget to mow my lawn this afternoon at 2. If you late, I'll deduct your pay into $ 2.

yeah payment and when we cut our hair we want to put it in some angle to make it look cool.....sometimes you use math but you dont notice it

OFCOURSE IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!


im the greatest hoarder of all times! i hoard everything!


that's why man invented "the calculator", insted of teaching math, we should have calculator class.
