Thanks! I'm glad I'm not the only one awake so late (unless ya'll are in far different time zones)! Nice to meet you both, this forum looks really helpful and friendly.

I think when members of the younger generation declare a hatred for math, they truly don't understand how whether they like it or not, they will be using math in every aspect of their life. I can't think of any professions that don't rely on math to some degree on a day to day basis. Just because you aren't going to become a statistician doesn't mean you escape the fundamentals! There were times in my childhood when I probably cursed math to some degree but just out of ignorance and immaturity. They'll eventually discover it goes far beyond the work place, too. I find myself using math non-stop even for personal hobbies I never imagined would require understanding deeper mathematical concepts (like fly fishing and custom rod building).

They'll understand one day! Neat article either way. smile

Hello! My name is Colin Fagras and I'm a new forum member as of tonight. These forums seem like a great resource for all things math related, especially for those seeking math help. While not a math genius, I've always enjoyed the subject and have a great appreciation for learning and education. I'm a professional web developer for a living and I currently live in the beautiful state of Arkansas. When I'm not working (or fly fishing), I spend lots of time working on my calculator website CalculateWhat.com which features a large variety of various web-based calculators for anything and everything under the sun, including dozens of math related calculators. I think lots of members here might find various parts of my website useful and quite related.

It's nice to meet everyone and I hope I can help contribute to this community of learners.
