"But We'll Never Use That In Real Life"

Inspired by Mr. Tall Dark and Mysterious and contrary to that familiar high school whine, Margi explains how math can come in handy in real long as it's taught to you in a relevant way.

As for me, well, I was college prep. I wish I'd been able to take consumer math, but alas I was not allowed. Instead, I had to suffer through years worth of algebra, geometry and trigonometry. For the most part, given what I studied in college, it was completely useless. The only thing I've ever used from geometry can be found in this post. Mr. Wright would have been so proud. The rest, however, is long forgotten.
