When am I ever going to use this? Math instructors hear these words on a daily basis. Many of us have developed personalized canned responses so that we always have an answer prepared. In this forum students should discuss why it might be valuable for a non-mathematician non-engineer to have an appreciation and/or a working understanding of higher level mathematics even if the computations will not be part of their daily routine. Also up for comment: why might there be intrinsic value in obtaining knowledge outside of ones chosen field of expertise? Please post an original statement addressing the question posed then take the time to comment on at least two of your classmates posts.
