I have never been too fond of math, it always held me back in some sort of way. Throughout grade and high school math always created an obstacle for me such as, getting on the honor roll, having a free summer or like now it’s stopping me from transferring. Math is pretty basic to a certain extent. After the subject of conversions I don’t feel like knowing the circumference of a circle is going to help me in my daily life. Sometimes I feel like the teachers chosen to teach certain math classes are not in the favor of the students, just because a teacher may have the qualifications to teach on paper does not mean they are adequate to teach a class.(Not including you Professor Reitz) im fully aware that math requires a lot of practice but you can’t practice something that isn’t taught well. Maybe when I am older ill understand why certain subjects of math are taught but as of right now i think some are truly not needed and is taking up the space of things that should be taught and can actually be used in a students daily life.
My major is Legal Studies. After I graduate I hope to get an externship with a prominent law firm. The 6th activity on the list would most likely be required; when an important case needs to be solved the firm may come together to discuss different ideas of how to go about the case. The following activity that is most likely required would be the 3rd activity on the list, brainstorming is a big part of law, and conclusions are constantly being reached through heavy brainstorming. Next, the 2nd activity would be most likely required, in the law field there are different programs that need to be accessed to obtain case records that may have similarities to a case that is currently being worked on. The 4th activity would be next; the information that is gathered from the computer system will contain data that may be useful. The 5th activity would also most likely be required because every case needs to be solved and so does an equation. The least likely activity would be converting units. I do feel this class would prepare me for the first task on my list because we are constantly doing group work. The last item on my list may be important to learn maybe when I am cooking.
