    Female

    Occupation: Adminsitrative Assistant III Supervisory

    Math:

    1. Work

    2. Money (Finacial)

    3. High School

    Math Everyday:

    1. Reconcile financial ledgers for department

    2. Payroll for monthly/bi-weekly

    3. Estimate travel expenses for business trips

    4. Pay Invoices and check budget

    I like math. I use it everyday in my job. I had a really great teacher that tought us different ways of getting to the same answer, so I think that helped because if you didnt understand one way, you would understand another. When I was younger I hated it, until that teacher came along.

    Age - 14(I'm in 10th grade btw)

    Female

    Occupation: student

    Three things:

    math class

    apple (haha idk why. I guess because of how each back to school thing has school supplies and an apple)

    calculator

    Five ways:

    -when shopping

    -doing my math hw

    -in other classes at school, trying to figure out statistics and whatnot

    -checking to see if my test score is added up right

    -in bio/physics/chemistry class

    I like math. I think it can be fun, but always is interesting. It can be frustrating if I don't understand it, but it's nice that there's always a logical explanation to why you do a certain thing. I like how there are set formulas to use. I also like it because I know I'm gonna need it for lots of things in life, so why hate something you'll be stuck with for most of your life? And I catch on pretty quickly, so it's easy and therefore fun.
