Mathematics do play a big part in our daily lives. Mathematical functions like addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and so on are used in our daily activities. From poor to rich , all have to some how use mathematics in their real lives. Consider a housewife, who has to run her house in the given budget. She divides money according to her needs and estimates about the expenses and then spends it according her range. From the advent of civilization, man learn to count using stones and beads. In the earliest civilization, barter-system was used. Now-a-days, all day to day transactions in a multi-national or national companies involve mathematical operations .
Mathematics is very important and you do not know when you will need them. I didn't pay enough attention to my maths lessons and I really regret that now. My first job, I never really needed maths but now I use them everyday in my new job. Excel is a great place to get a computer to do your maths for you! But you will use maths when you go to buy fruit from the shop all the way through to checking your bank statements every month.
Mathematics finds use in the daily life of many people. This could be for mundane household tasks, or as part of a profession. Here is a small list:
Balancing a checkbook
maintaining a family budget
maintaining a business budget
measuring a space for adding/rearranging furniture
measuring wood to be cut in a building project
measuring steel to be placed in a construction project
measuring pipe for a number of uses including sewer, conduit, water, etc.
And, somewhat more subjectively, in playing a good game of pool.
Well, mathematics is very important in real life because all you've learned during your school days can apply in different ways, such like how to budget in a daily needs and etc.
Without mathematics, living in this precious world is useless.
Without your knowing it, you are calculating all the time. Judging distance, measuring, balancing and more. When you want to walk to the local market, don't you try to figure the distance, and about how long it will take you to get there and back, or do you drive to the market, and save time.
When you cook, you measure, and even if you don't measure, sometimes you just go by sight and determine if this is the amount that you want. Even with balancing, you determine how much or how little angle is need to keep something, like your body, balanced.
You measure time too, like "how much time do I have available to do the laundry, or make a meal, clean the house before you have to go to work, or go to bed.
You are using math all the time, and you don't really think about it, because it is more frequent than you think. Hope this helps.
