If only Sleet was a raccoon. Either way, the broom is super effective on all woodland critters.

I have no idea, but I feel bad for all these weaponized brooms.
The brooms are a peaceful people and not bred for combat, they must be terrified.

But Sleet, as a mad scientist, I can't say math is better than science, else I would be a mad mathamatition, or a bard. I think I'll stick with bard as a fallback career.

Wait Journalism does require math sometimes. Like in the sports section when it comes to scores. Also there is dates, prices and other amounts of money, and even ages of people. Sure it doesn't require complex math, but it is still math.

That's probably because math is (mostly) set in stone. It hasn't really changed, or been expanded upon to any severe degree, for quite some time.

Aside from the math that goes into scientific work, math itself hasn't really done much for society. Which I guess is, in a way, a silly thing to say, since most everything that happens in the scientific world requires some form of mathematics. :B

Bah. I don't know. I just don't like having to do all this complex mathematics for college stuff when I know it's not really gonna help me any after I get a degree. :p

"Dad, will you help with my homework?" You may be surprised by what field you end up in - not everyone's careers and degrees match up. As an example, I'm a journalist by education. I am not a practicing journalist, I work in customer service. I'm looking at graduate school, but I'm not sure whether I'm pursuing an MA in journalism, an MBA, a JD, or something else. Some of those things require math, too, darn it! = P

Fair enough. :p

I'm mostly talking about the Calculus-grade stuff, though. There is a very limited scope of career paths that will actually require, or even involve, that sort of stuff. Anything up to and including the more complex algebraic equations, I'm more than comfortable with anyway, so unless my hypothetical children (that's still a big 'if') end up wanting to be mathematicians or physicists or something along those lines, I don't think I'll have too much trouble helping them with homework. Lol.

I could go all out saying how useful math is.
I don't feel like doing that right now.
Calculus is used in a lot of careers. All the science, engineering stuff requires calculus; careers like business, economics, and accounting requires calculus; and pretty much all white collar jobs require math before calculus.

My statistics class would have been one of the most useful classes I've ever taken if I still wanted to go into politics.

I don’t really need anything beyond arithmetic now, but if you have aspirations beyond being a professional disappointment to your parents you should probably take some math classes.

Nobody's saying math isn't useful or important. Especially at the higher levels, however, it's not equally useful to everyone. Someone who makes a living as a word-jockey, for example, may not need to know all about calculus and spatial geometry. That does not diminish the importance of those fields, nor the value of advanced mathematics abilities. It takes all kinds of people, interests, and abilities to make a world, as the saying goes.
