The nurses I know don't use algebra. Who uses those algebraic equations? I have asked doctors, lawyers, science teachers, nurses, CPA's (certified public accountants), engineers, building contractors, and more. This is ONE of my pet peeves. It has been my pet peeve since I have tried to help my daughter in algebra in high school. At the same time I was trying to help my daughter, I was going thru nursing school
and trying to help my classmates thru college algebra. (I had taken college algebra 15 years earlier). No one uses that algebra stuff that I know of. When I had to try to help my son last year thru his algebra class, I thought, why do they enforce this crap? I know very intelligent people that never use this. We should be concentrating on grammar
. If you read my posts, or any of the posts here, there are a lot of grammar and spelling errors. I know I could use some education on spelling and grammar but NOT ALGEBRA!
