So Who Needs Math?

study mathThere are those that love Math; in fact some, like my son, think it more exciting than a good English novel; but for most of us Math is one of those subjects to endure.  We study Math, but grudgingly, without enthusiasm and we barely make the grade.  At the earliest possible time, we drop it from our list of courses we study.  But should we?

Math is everywhere, in almost everything we do.  You need Math to tell the time of day and to estimate how long it will take to get somewhere or to do something.  We use Math in sewing, cooking, business and technology.  It seems it is one of those subjects we shouldn’t neglect.

This is especially true if you are planning on studying abroad in a country like Canada.  Most universities have Math as an admission requirement for some if not all of their faculties.  For example, if you are planning on studying Business, Medicine, the Sciences or Engineering at a major university in Canada, you will want to take Grade 12 Math (or its equivalent, i.e.:  A2 level Math or AP Math)

Even if you are planning on studying in the Faculty of Arts at a Canadian university or college you most likely will be required to have two Sciences or one Math and one Science.

So don’t forget to add Math to your study timetable.  You may find you need it in the future.

If you are reviewing Canadian colleges and universities and trying to decide what admission requirements you should have so you can study at your institution of choice, and you need assistance in understanding what you need, contact a veteran in the field at Alberta Rose Education Centre.  Their main international recruitment consultant has over 27 years of Canadian post-secondary education experience.
