You might not know, but math is in your everyday life! There are numbers and shapes everywhere. If you are driving a car and you see a stop sign, you are looking directly at an octagon, which is a shape! Also, if you have a playlist on your phone that has ten songs in it, and you only want one song to play, you got yourself a math problem! How? This type of math problem is called probability. For instance: if you roll a dice, what is the probability that you will roll a two? Well, there are six sides on a die and one of the sides is a two, then you have a 1/6 chance of rolling a two because there are six sides and one of them is a two.
Let’s look at another example of math in everyday life. Say you are at a café and are ordering some food and the cost of the food is $5.25. You order the food and give the cashier $10.00. Do you know how much change you should get back? You should know how much change you are supposed to get back because the cashier might make a mistake or be dishonest. Unfortunately, this has happened to me, I was at a restaurant and I purchased some items and I calculated how much money I should get back and the cashier gave me less money than I should have gotten back. However, I did not tell the cashier, I went to my Mom and told her I got ripped-off. I could have told the cashier, but I did not speak up, so do not be afraid to speak up!
