I'm doing these books, which are some of the strangest and most enjoyable series of math books I've ever encountered.
I used those for everything up to Algebra 2. Man, those were the bomb. But then we got broke, and I had to start using some shitty online math curriculum.
Yeah, I love the economics/pre algebra book. It basically sank any chance he had for making it mainstream, though.

And Tiel... I don't even know what to say, you're starting to sound sort of childish.

Biology isn't a real science, anyone knows that.

But Physics, and Chemistry do have a lot to do with maths, but Maths isn't vital for everything, but it is incredibly vital for any form of engineering, which means for a lot of things, maths is important.

Even if you don't do the maths yourself, you still rely on things built with the aid of maths.
Balancing formulas is simple addition, multiplication, etc...grade school stuff, really. Haven't taken Physics, but I'd imagine it's more of the same. I won't begrudge that levels of math beyond Algebra 2 are absolutely crucial to things like programming or engineering, but for anyone not looking to go into those select fields it's a credit, nothing more. Why should the government require schools to teach, say, Calculus, when a majority of students are likely going to forget everything about it within a handful of years of finishing their education anyway for lack of application?

It's a completely arbitrary requirement compared to subjects like English or History. The goal is, of course, to create well-rounded graduates, but it seems to me that's just not happening when certain topics are only given the equivalent of a stealthy fart in most state curriculum. Essays beat the s**t out of memorizing something for a few weeks and then never touching on it again.

Yeah, it is useless for most people.

We are able to drop it once we get to our A-levels, but it's compulsory at GSCE (also its EAF)

Ehh, I see what you mean, and I sort of agree. But it's also unfair to make kids choose their future before they're 18, so I think the current system is fine. Actually, I support unschooling more than anything else, so I guess I technically don't have an opinion on what public schools do.

Also, thanks for the advice Fr0st.
