ok so we need more mathematicians apparently??
so when was the last time you people called out the emergency 24-hr mathematician to fix a problem at yr home? Huh? And is there an 18 month waiting list to see a mathematician?? I dont thk so!
Firstly, if you're going to argue that uneducated people are still intelligent, why not at least make an attempt with your grammar and spelling.
I don't see why you need to make this personal but, as a matter of fact, we do need more mathematicians.
If you seem to think mathematicians or so unimportant, do you think we would have things like planes, computers, television, cars, appliances that fix your home and most of the equipment we use to diagnose and treat patients without applying mathematics and using mathematical modelling to simulate reality?
and tell me gaz031 wat is the use of traking the asteroid when ppl are dying in africa of starvation
Probably because a medium sized asteroid will kill [all] the people in a land mass larger than africa.
and if cleaners are expendable why is ppl dying in hospitals when the wards arent cln?
The thing is that there are more people that can clean rather than solve problems or invent new technology. People are dying in wards that aren't clean, not because of a lack of cleaners, but because of goverment target setting that forces people to rush and not do the job properly.
At the end of the day, if we really needed more cleaners we could simply increase their wages. We couldn't do this for mathematicians, scientists or doctors.
"The Supply of People with Skills" highlighted that the UK was suffering from a shortage of physical science, engineering and mathematics students at university and skilled workers in the labour market. He said that the shortage could do serious damage to the UK's future growth.
