1 Thought on "Back to School"

I actually agree with what Oliver says about math. I took lots of it in high school and started off in college as an engineering major. But since entering the working world I have never used anything more than arithmetic and basic algebra. My one regret is that I never took a course on statistics, which would have been very useful in many ways, both on the job and in private life.
