    Business, Money and Math Games: Learning While Having Fun

    Math is one of the most important subjects we learn about in school. It's something that we'll use all of our lives and something that's all around us all the time. When you look at the clock and wonder how much longer you have until bedtime, that's math. When you have a pile of candy and need to figure out how to divide it up to share with your friends, that's math, too. And when you want to save up your allowance to buy a new video game, you'll need math to figure out how much money you have and how much more you need. Adults need math a lot, too, whether they're balancing their budget, getting a loan to buy a new car, or trying to run a business that makes more money than it spends. Math is everywhere, which is why it's really important that you learn all about it and get good at it. It can also be fun to get better at math. There are lots of games and puzzles out there that you can use to learn about different types of math without being bored.
