i read somewhere that (NASA) was going to change the way they use math. I also read that schools were going to stop teaching certain forms of math as it is no longer needed and outdated. I did not believe this. How can they change math? I am 18 and i was hanging with my grandparents (yes, this is rare for an 18 year old i know) and they explained to me how they had only "business math" in school. They were not shown how to do the comlex math we do now in school. I had no idea the universal language math changed so much. i though math changed other things, not itself really. <br /><br />could this be true? are they changing it to be easier for other countries to adopt or would they adopt other countries systems? i for one have NEVER used long divion outside of school.. and working at Sears during the holiday season is as much "real world" experience as a human can get.
