btw...pythagoras is imo the most useful formula in math
all this differentiation n integration is what boggles me...how does anyone ever use that :S?

Integrals can be used to find area under a curve, for example, with probability and statistics.
Derivatives and integrals find their way into chemistry too.
I just finished up a project for class that involved using differential equations that are used to determine how much pressure to exert for a breathing machine.
Integration is used with proton NMRs as well, where you can determine how many hydrogen atoms are present at a certain chemical shift. Derivatives can be used to determine a rate of change of something, as well as velocity.

Engineers use it. For example, differential equations are used to determine how much stress a bridge can take.

Maths will come in very handy for me...currently doing Maths B/C (In Australia, no idea what it'd be called in other countries) to get the qualifications for a Civil Engineer. Lotsamoooney

I hate math, 90% of math we learn is useless in a real life environment.
onec it was, but when computers appeared, it got so applied.

I'd say during and before Dark Ages, that was true.

hmm...didnt know that!! well...learning where everything i study is getting applied helps me take more interest in it
