Welcome to our Week 1 discussion! You may begin posting on Monday, January 3, 2022, for credit. This week, we will be discussing the real-world value of mathematics.
In math, there is a strong tendency to rely on abstract concepts to help answer real-world problems. Formulas, variables, and equations are all necessary components of mathematical rigor. However, after too many “Solve for x” type problems, it becomes easy to forget the purpose behind it all and we begin to question, “Why am I learning this?” or “Will I ever use this in real life?” Ng and Parwani (2014) believe the alienation many students feel toward mathematics can be overcome by motivating the various concepts through real-world examples. This week’s discussion will focus on such real-world examples.
