Yes, You Do Use It

I've blogged it before, and I'll blog it again.

When people learn I have a math degree, they sometimes come to me and say, "Oh my gosh!  I have this incredibly hard math problem because I'm (usually they're renovating their house) and only a guy with a math degree can solve it!"

When I take a look at the problem, it usually boils down to a Grade 5 word problem that they could easily solve themselves if they didn't waste Grade 5 math class sassing their teacher about how they'd never need it when they grew up.
