Mathematics is a vital key to success in the world!
Math is a methodical explanation of our universe! Math makes our life orderly and helps eliminate chaos. Many human qualities are developed and strengthened by mathematics including the ability to reason, to create, to think abstractly or use spatial thinking, critical thinking skills, and problem-solving abilities.
So! What does all this have to do with the kinds of things I normally blog about you may ask? Not a darn thing! I just thought the little story I posted below was quite illustrative of that point. And, it made me chuckle, so I thought I would share it! It is taken from a Twitter post by @Bofferson:
King Geoff II looked out from his castle window.
“How big is their army?”
“10,000 men Sire.”
“9,000 men Sire.”
“So as a percentage, how much bigger is their army than ours?”
“Um mm, 1000%?”
“We’d better surrender then.”
And that’s why math is so important kids!

LOL! You got it, Nasuko! 👍
Thanks! I thought so!
I can’t wait to forward this to my wife….a high school math teacher. Funny! Thanks! Reid
Great! I hope she enjoys it!
I am quite a good in Mathematics from college to university level, but still unable to found those places where Trigonometry, Derivation and Integration are used.
I know from experience that Trigonometry is used a great deal in the military.
Hmm good to hear that at least it’s being user in somewhere.
Wonderful and hilarious! I really liked the opening paragraph.
Thanks! And, thanks for stopping by to comment. 👍
