Computers can easily do all the basic and advanced calculations. Do you think your children should spend more time learning basic mathematics or advanced computer technology. Give your views in not less than 250 words.
It is obvious that the computer has been put in use in numerous industries. With its power in calculating, the need to have skilled people in mathematics has been slightly reduced. Hence, this has led to a question which is worth considering whether children should spend more time on learning basic mathematics or advanced computer technology. In this essay, I will prove that learning mathematics is still a very important requirement for children.
Firstly, the computer is not capable of solving complex mathematic questions. It is designed to do only particular jobs. For jobs that require creativity, we still need to have people who are highly trained. Hence, there is a need for adolescent people to study basic mathematics and then advanced mathematics so that they can be capable of doing complex jobs.
Moreover, in the interest of improving current technologies, there should be scientists who have to be knowledgeable enough. Without learning the basics of mathematics, it is doubtful that there is anybody who can perform advanced tasks. For instance, without the knowledge of algebra, people will not be able to understand advanced mathematics.
Finally, learning mathematics is believed to be one of the many ways to improve human brain reflection. Mathematics has been widely taught for thousands of years in all nations. As can be seen, children in countries where mathematics is highly considered tend to perform better in problem solving than those in countries with less attention in mathematics.
Summing it up, I strongly recommend that children should spend more time on learning basic mathematics. It will be very helpful for them in improving their own problem solving skills and they can become more capable of learning advanced subjects and improving current technologies.
