1. School is a wonderful place made to enrich young minds
2. But did you ever think when you were in math class "When am I ever going to use this?"
3. Now that you're grown up, did you have a time to use those formulas, sequences, and calculations you learned in grade school?
4. In your adult life, have you ever used (or calculated by hand):

The Pythagorean Theorem?
There are triangles in the world that I NEED to know the area of.I cannot think of an instance where this would be useful.

Addition of improper fractions:
Not only do I add them regularly, but I can simplify them faster than you can say Fibonacci.Stop it with the math. I'm done. None of this is relevant.
