Because a world full of people unable to do basic arithmetic is exactly what we need...

<soapbox> Yeah. Assuming you always have a calculator on hand at all times, you're slowing yourself down considerably if you have to use it for all computation. However, I think that is the biggest load of ******** for why somebody should learn mathematics and I hate every teacher that has ever used that excuse. Mathematics isn't about mindlessly calculating stupid equations until the end of time, but a study of change and relations, structure and quantity. It is a very artistic field with a great deal of abstract thinking, but that isn't taught in the classroom, unfortunately. It is a field in which logic and reason guide the work as closely as possible (although not perfectly, as that would be impossible (axioms.)) A field in which we can answer very difficult problems regarding the world around us, but also toy with ideas that don't have direct applications to the "real world (despite hating that phrase.)" It is a field in which the truth frequently contradicts tuition. I don't know. I just think mathematics is the **** , but most people don't even get the chance to experience any of it, because low-level math classes are that same calculating ******** . I feel that if people really knew what math is all about, we'd not hear "When will I ever use this in the 'real world?'" anymore. That is a world I hope to live in someday. </soapbox>

I don't expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses... I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death.
^You made me think of this

A costic environment where the phone wont last long (like to sea)

Teacher is right, you wont always have a calc on you.

It's not her fault, how was she supposed to know that people would actually buy Windows Phones?
