I remember thinking over and over about how subjects would help me in school. Every kid does that right? We all wondered how social studies, advanced maths, English, foreign languages, science, gym, art, or some other subject was going to help us in life. Do you remember any subject that you studied through school that to this day has been useless to you? I disliked all kinds of things yet as I list the subjects here that I took, now at almost 47 years old, I can't say that I haven't used any of my subjects at all. In other words, everything I learned in school has helped me in one way or another.

The only two that I hated and have never been of any use to me were Algebra and Geometry.

I used Geometry when I installed satellite dishes. Algebra was interesting to me but not useful. I was pretty good at it at the time but I am not too swift now.

well........ for me mathematics is good subject number are easy in studying not like the others subject,in math thing that you are eating peanut,b'coz peanuts sharpen your mind and the brain become oily.so when you think during solving it will slide meaning easy to remember and easy to formulate the formula and have the correct answer.

I agree with you. I have found that there are parts of every subject that I ever studied that have helped me. I also don't see it as being just about subjects, there are a lot of other skills involved in studying that help in later life such as organisation, teamwork, analysis of data, synthesis of new ideas, prioritising of tasks amongst many others.

You are obviously a very practical person. By the way, I love your icon picture. I had a red and white bassett when I was a little girl.

yes that's rigth that those subject you mention it everything you learned in school it helped in another way.like the math and english its big help for in daily life living to us b'coz math you can use everytime do calculation example if you are working in bank you use calculator to get the total amount of your customer costs and anywhere now people do calculation malls,offices,banks,restaurant.the english also b,coz some people go other places to understand of what they want to ask somebody they use english to easy understand.am i right!

You are so correct- although there were many that I thought at the time- What the heck- when will I use this- I have at some point- even the pointless badminton class in college- I used it to play badminton camping a few years back- Now if I only majored in frisbee- lol We play all the time and I'm terrible- All the art classes have made me crafty- all the math I use everyday at work in some sort or another-- even gym- taught me how to get fit! Isn't it funny- now there are several things in each class that I won't ever use- just not the whole class!

I have a fear of object flying in my direction. Even a frisbee or a shuttlecock scare me. I think it has something to do with lack of coordination.
