There are two types of people in this world: Right brained and left brained. After a Google search I discovered that I’m right brained. I’m more creative (except when it comes to thinking of post topics) and verbal than logical. I would rather write than do math any day!

There is a reason “math” is a four letter word. Hearing the word brings my 33-year old brain back twenty years ago. I was in Miss Deubler’s eighth grade algebra class. She was a first-year teacher, which wasn’t hard to tell. She also thought algebra was the most important class on my schedule.

I agree that math is important. But why must the average person know how to solve for x in 50x – 4!? Isn’t that what iPhones and iPads are for? Okay, I admit that most people use math every day—counting change, etc. Simple math. What you learned in elementary school.

I guess my point is… Miss Deubler and every algebra teacher that told their students that that they’ll “need this some day”: The jig is up! As long as the good folks at Apple took (and remembered) algebra, I’m good. I give them permission to make algebra obsolete in my life.
