Because a world full of people unable to do basic arithmetic is exactly what we need...

<soapbox> Yeah. Assuming you always have a calculator on hand at all times, you're slowing yourself down considerably if you have to use it for all computation. However, I think that is the biggest load of ******** for why somebody should learn mathematics and I hate every teacher that has ever used that excuse. Mathematics isn't about mindlessly calculating stupid equations until the end of time, but a study of change and relations, structure and quantity. It is a very artistic field with a great deal of abstract thinking, but that isn't taught in the classroom, unfortunately. It is a field in which logic and reason guide the work as closely as possible (although not perfectly, as that would be impossible (axioms.)) A field in which we can answer very difficult problems regarding the world around us, but also toy with ideas that don't have direct applications to the "real world (despite hating that phrase.)" It is a field in which the truth frequently contradicts tuition. I don't know. I just think mathematics is the **** , but most people don't even get the chance to experience any of it, because low-level math classes are that same calculating ******** . I feel that if people really knew what math is all about, we'd not hear "When will I ever use this in the 'real world?'" anymore. That is a world I hope to live in someday. </soapbox>
