Math Skills Gone?
Dave comments on one listener's claim that America is dumbing down.
QUESTION: Dave comments on a listener email about the loss of math skills in today's society.
ANSWER: Math skills have eroded way, but sometimes I wonder if it's not such a bad thing. Calculators are everywhere and if there's a quicker way of being more efficient at something, I'm always in favor of that. Mathematics is a big foundation of many things we do in society however, so sharpening up is never a bad thing.
