I really hate posts that have “there is no algebra in real life” and similar things that mention maths and it’s lack of application to reality.

I also hate the fact that they are lauded as relatable, and get a lot of notes.

If it wasn’t for algebra, calculus, and all forms of maths, and science, you would absolutely not be able to do 90% or more of what you do.

Maths is the universal language - and it is really rather beautiful.

Without maths, you can’t have electricity, you can’t drive a car, use your computer, use the Internet, watch a movie, play a video game, use literally any program, have a house that doesn’t collapse, trains and public transport, plumbing, heating, furniture, air travel, statistics, medicines, so so so much more, and let’s not forget, that without maths, we would know nothing about space and would absolutely not be able to go there.

If we extend this to science, this list would be exponentially longer.

So please, don’t insult maths and it’s importance to our progress as humans, and its extensive application to every aspect of daily life.

Many of us do use algebra in real life and strive to make your life better through its use.
