Why do kids need to study math?

Imagine a world where no one knew how to do math. If people just used computers for their calculations, what would happen when there was a new problem that required a specific calculator? If nobody knew how to do the math, there would be no one to make the calculator and then there would be no solution to the problem.

How do students learn math?

Math is best learned through practice and application of mathematical processes or formulas to real-world problems. It is one thing to memorize a math problem with a known solution, but another thing to have to figure out a solution to a unique and original problem. Students will best gain an understanding for math through the latter, and will better retain this knowledge by practicing its application rather than by being asked to memorize problems.
