# Mathematics: Benefits of Learning Math

Most of the students sometimes get confused to choose what’s the best for them to learn. In this case, for Mathematics subject. Here are some reasons and benefits of learning mathematics:

## Benefits of Learning Math

#### Math is good for brain

Research conducted by Dr. Tanya Evans of Stanford University indicates that children who know math can recruit certain brain regions more reliably, and have higher gray matter volume in those regions, than those who perform more poorly in math. While correlation may not imply causation, this study indicates that the same brain regions that help you do math are recruited in decision-making and attentional processes.

Math is an excellent exercise for stimulating the brain since it involves a lot of thinking and reasoning. Like most things that are done repeatedly, when your child keeps practicing math, they eventually understand the process and arrive at solutions more easily. For instance, when we first learned addition and subtraction, we needed to use our fingers or an abacus to help us work with numbers. Over time, we become more adept at performing basic calculations in our heads. This is because constantly engaging in thinking strengthens neural pathways, allowing us to recognize and memorize patterns much more quickly.

Math helps us to improve our critical/analytical thinking. We could define it as the thought directed to decompose the arguments in its premises or expressions that compose it, to see the relations that exist between them and their conclusion, in order to judge its veracity or reliability of the same. This is what we do when we do a mathematical problem: collect the data, break down its premises, observe the relations that keep or systematically solve their parts in a rational way. If we are able to understand mathematics and arrive at logical solutions, we will be able to prepare our minds when we have real problems. We can look for the best logic, see the possible solutions and relate the data we have to reach the conclusion.

#### Math would make life easier

Math is everywhere around us. Bees, masters of geometry, use hexagons to build their honeycombs. The Fibonacci sequence, a famous sequence of numbers in mathematics, is found throughout nature: in pinecones, seashells, trees, flowers, and leaves.

Math would make our lives easier. Not only will your quick mental arithmetic skills help you become known as the smart person who everyone appreciates when the waiter brings the check to your table, your math skills can also help you shop. Knowledge of percentages and how to calculate them quickly can help you save time when shopping at a sale at the mall – for example, to quickly calculate a discounted price, or to determine whether you’ve been correctly charged when paying for a shirt at the store. You don’t need a Ph.D. in math to develop some quick mental arithmetic skills; they can help you in these and other areas of your life in the long run.

Obviously, mathematicians and scientists rely on mathematical principles to do the most basic aspects of their work, such as test hypotheses. While scientific careers famously involve math, they are not the only careers to do so. Even operating a cash register requires that one understands basic arithmetic. People working in a factory must be able to do mental arithmetic to keep track of the parts on the assembly line and must, in some cases, manipulate fabrication software utilizing geometric properties (such as the dimensions of a part) in order to build their products. Really, any job requires math because you must know how to interpret your paycheck and balance your budget.
