Few students are gifted when it comes to mathematics, and many of them have struggled to complete their mandatory courses to graduate. With the advent of computers in nearly every device now made, some enterprising students might believe that learning this subject is no longer relevant.

More advanced math subjects are taught in the forms of algebra, trigonometry and statistics. Each of these has its own place in the modern world.
