Mathematics is one of the most important subjects as it provides several vital skills for all learners. Some of these skills include: the ability to identify and analyze patterns, logic and critical thinking, and ability to see relationships and problem solving. All of us use mathematics in our daily lives. When we use money in transactions, we are using math. You need to know math to pay bills, buy food and other essentials. Mathematics is involved in almost everything that shapes our society from cellphones, cars, computers, bridges and many other things. I personally love mathematics a...
Most high school students enter college and struggle because they are not well prepared for the academic rigors there. College is nothing compared to high school, as it's very intense and requires more reading and writing. I know a lot of students who are still paying money to take high school level classes in college and struggling to maintain a B average. I think our government needs to step up and do something to help students reach their potential and prepare for college level courses. We need to introduce high school students to more rigorous classes that can challenge and better prepa...
I started college earlier this fall hoping to learn and grow as much as I can but I never knew that learning could be so exciting until I took my first computer science class. I was impressed to see myself writing programs that tell the computer exactly what to do. I almost feel like I have some sort of magic power over to make the computer do things. One of the first things I learned was about game design. I used processing to create a soccer game from scratch. I am currently working on a project with some classmates to create game on processing that might be formatted for ioS. I am really en...
When I started thinking about why education is so important, I remembered my high school years when I used to spend almost five hours a month on math homework, wake up at 6:00 AM and get ready for my PSAL soccer game after school. I remembered my teachers, school subjects, the study and the fun! I never really hated school. But I have seen many of my peers who hated going to school; I have had some friends who did not like the idea of studying. Some needed to be up in summer school for recovery. I personally was always focused because I wanted to become a software engineer. I know it will be h...

The education system of the United Stated has lost its value because it's now ranked below many countries worldwide in subject areas such as math and science. Some parts of the US economy is dependent on foreign countries and most of jobs are created overseas. Additionally, only few students in U.S study the STEM subjects. Even those who have gone to college and earned those degrees don't have the skills needed to compete with their foreign peers. The US is falling behind and something needs to be done. We need to reinforce the education system and start introducing more technology tools in th...

With a challenging economy and people struggling to find jobs, more and more college students are choosing majors they think will make them the most money rather pursuing their dream job, which may not pay as well. College is a time for exploration and discovery. For those students determined to become surgeons or lawyers, among other fields, choosing a college major that can help them realize those goals makes sense. Certain students entering the medical field consider the income of that career over the satisfaction and love for it. However being a doctor is more than just a job. If you are i...
Most students, especially some high school graduates, fear science and technology careers due to the challenging situation it might lead them. Engineering is hard, however not impossible to pursue as a career. I believe that there is nothing easy in life. It's better to go through all the challenges and struggles while you are in college and be better off later in real life. Most students who graduate from college with a science or engineering degree will probably have thousands of loans but their contributions to society and the world can't be underestimated. Due to the scientists and enginee...
According to Nelson Mandela, education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world. However, millions of children around the globe are still uneducated while their governments are wasting billions on programs such as defense. I personally believe that everyone should have equal access to education. There millions of children around the world who can't get access to education due to poverty and certain disadvantages and that is really quite sad. While some are fighting for access to education, others are taking it for granted in developed nations such as the United States and o...
There is a realization that our government is missing a point in ensuring the education of every American. Every one out of four high school students do not graduate from high school. There are fewer programs to intrinsically motivate high school students to challenge themselves beyond what is usually expected from them. Colleges are becoming more selective and students who are performing below certain grade levels have limited choices regarding college admission and are also less likely to get access to certain scholarships. Students who find themselves in these situations are more likely ...
Ramadan is name of the ninth month of the Islamic moon calendar. It is the most significant month in the Islamic calendar. During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims must fast (no food or water) from sunset to sundown. Depending on where you live, the fast can be as long as 17 hours, which is the case this year for those living in North America. During this month, Muslims ask for forgiveness and express gratitude for the things they normally take for granted. The purpose of the fast is to realize how important it's to have life and good health. This month is a way to thanks God for everythin...
