Most school attendees have an innate dislike of mathematics. Unless looking toward a future vocation directly involving the applied use of math, the majority of pupils usually voice sentiments along the lines of, “When am I ever going to use this garbage when I become the World Skateboard Champion?”

Then years later, you realize retrospectively that you subconsciously use mathematics—especially geometry—every day of your life. Estimating passing distances while driving, or when the 40-foot-tree crunches ten feet of your house roof because you failed to correctly measure the 30-foot intervening space while testing that Horsepower from Hell chain saw, or when trying to outrun a tornado because you figure your self-invented Pythagass Theorem gives better odds than picking a trifecta at a race track.
