PLN 30

The article “Transparent Algebra: In-Class Part 2 of TBD (When are we ever going to use this Wednesdays)” by Carl Fisch matters because even I ask this question. In geometry almost every time we learn something new at least one kid asks “When are we ever going to use this in life?” and the teacher always responds “In more advanced math you will need to know this.” Even though math is stressful and confusing at times it is an essential skill that you use every day whether you realize it or not. This article matters to me because I ask the question sometimes when I am either confused or frustrated. This article matters to the world and community because there are jobs all over the place that use the math that we are learning now. This article matters to education because education is the reason kids are asking this question. In conclusion I know that we need to learn math and that it is not a pointless skill.
