Math is important in our lives due to its usefulness through application. Although manytimes it is challenging and does not seem entertaining, it can be applied to nearly every portion of our life. To understand math is to understand the intricacies that tie things together by numbers-- and there are plenty of those as everything has a numeric value in some way, and anything that does not can be placed into categories which can then be subsidized using mathematics. Once understood, principles in math can help us anywhere from our everyday mental math addition and subtraction, to leaving a proper tip for a waiter, to constructing a building or being used in quantum physics. Math is everywhere, thus it is important in our life.
