If your son or daughter asked you why they needed to learn math in school, what would you tell them? Provide one real-world example of when graphing could be useful. Do you think you would ever use graphing in your life to solve problems? Explain why or why not.
Weegy: I do not have any kids, but if I did I would tell them math is a part of life. I would explain that we all use math in one way or another every day. [ I would them give some examples like how we use math at the grocery store to find out how much we bought cost. Another example would be we use math is to save money to buy things like toys. If we did not have a way to add up numbers then it would be difficult to buy and sell things. Graphing could be useful when it is necessary or desired to visualize data or equations, such as when one tries to see how much a child has grown over the past few years. Admittedly, the ability of graphing to solve mundane problems seems less clear, but although I doubt I will use it often to solve these problems, I will definitely leave it as an option that is open to me in the future. ] (More)

[ Admittedly, the ability of graphing to solve mundane problems seems less clear, but although I doubt I will use it often to solve these problems, I will definitely leave it as an option that is open to me in the future. There countless examples of when graphing could be useful. The first thing to come to mind would be in a business setting to track finances, but a graph could also be used for something like to illustrate the how temperature of the sun varies as one moves from the center to the surface and then off the surface. Also a graph could be used to track a cars performance and the amount of gas that is used over a period of time. For the most part I believe that graphs are best used when there is data that is easier understood with visualize or show relationships between variables. ] (More)
