Reasons to LEARN in School

 

~ Troika ~

English: Developing a set of skills where you would be able to efficiently communicate an idea or your point across to a wide range of audience to illuminate barriers, such as someone unable to understand or mistakingly interpret what your saying in a different way. This is very important for understanding and realisation, the 2 most important reasons why English is important. Cross referencing text is also another skill gained from learning english, your skills could change your life & save a lot of unnessesary heartache.

History: why learn about history, isn't it just HISTORY?? Say you had an idea that would take you 20 years to put together but say its already been attempted and failed.... you would have just used 20 years of your life coming to the same or similar conclusion, although this would help science, it means nothing without history, without records of the trials & error attempts, dates to know the decade etc. With the knowledge of history, you're able to gain the knowledge to succeed where others have failed. It's also very important for the meaning and reason behind the very logic that follows on from history or the creation of traditions created from forgotten history. Did you know, the concept of leaning your elbow on a table as being rude originated from when we had round tables? Resting your elbows on the table would cause it to tipover. 

Mathematics: why are we learning this? We will never use this. One of the most common questions but what if I told you that you could be able to predict the future with mathematics? It's a language based on knowledge and can preform many kinds of magical tricks. The main skill obtained from mathematics is the ability to problem solve as you may know, but what would you use it for right? In every aspect of life you would need to understand how to solve problems Mathematics gives you that knowledge of thousands of years passed down thanks to history, to you. Your logical thinking can improve with the understanding of mathematics. Complex problems can be solved easier & the skills obtained from your knowledge of Mathematics are endless. Im not good a Mathematics its too hard.... Einstein useto say "Never worry about your difficulties in mathematics, I can assure you mine are greater", what did he mean by this? His reasoning was that even know Maths is hard at first you are always going to have problems that you will need to solve. While the difficulties may be 1+1 in Kinder or Trigonometry in high school, they were all problems with solutions, Einstein was facing problems that no body had worked on before so he had to check his own workings.   

Science/Physics/Biology: like mathematics and history science is a compiled resource of knowledge passed down from thousands of generations to you. Science is the basis of what makes engineering so successful, the very reason we are able to push the limits and use nature as our tool. Engineering creates the theories of science a reality. We have a lot to appreciate, Bridges, Computers, Artifical Light, GPS tracking, Cameras to record our history, Medication, Exploration of outerspace etc etc. An Undestnding of Nature is a better understanding of yourself.  

Sport: Understading rules of play, understanding the bodies working, understand how to be healthy, understand most effienct way to life healthy. If you combine your knowledge of sport, with that of science, imagine the ability to build a fitness program based on someone's genetic results? Although sport may be repetitive, sport shows you other ways to socially gather & engage in exercise. Balance is important.

Art: See the world as it is, or see it differently? You see a rare animal in nature, how could you illustrate it? You want to visually represent the works of a complex torsion clock, how would be the best way to do this?

Why would I want to learn this? I don't want to, I just want to do what I wanna do in life?

How do you see your future? Are you to create your future? Almost Everything around you, everything you see in civilisation is man-made, its what gives you that comfortable life. For it to continue for future generations. For you to start a new civilisation say if this one falls. For you to never to repeat a mistake in history. For you to be able to think logically and clearly. You would have to excel your limits and school provides you with that stepping stone. Many want an easy life but it's only easy when there is something that has gone through the hard times and made their life easier with the goodness of others in mind. Every mind is different, even if the puzzle peace connects in one place it won't in another. No body can change that world but with the power of many you can. 

May you realise the strength of knowledge and appreciate this world around you, work on acceptance & understanding of others to help make this world a better place.

Why theory? Theory is all the knowledge others have worked out from basic trial and error. To reproduce the work, trail and error without any recorded knowledge would have to be done. In some instances this can take many years to complete. Using recorded history we can speed up that process and continue to build on already discovered knowledge to advance our world. 

Why do we need to know the words of things? Take for example you need to 'explain' something to someone in the most effective way possible so they understand it with ease & in turn makes it easier for you as your understanding is so educated, they will grasp what you said more efficiently. This is where English skills come into play, tighter explanation will result in greater understanding specially for someone who make take a bit of time to grasp a concept. Example: say you want to know how to order a part for a device you don't know the names for, how could you get your message across. The greater your understanding of both language & knowledge of what your talking about, the more likely you will be at reaching a positive result sooner rather than later as everyones knowledge is different, everyone sees the world differently. Times of emergency is where this, your greatest asset will become known. Ever seen the movie 'Lucy'?

 

To better understand, you must look at Patterns & Connections.

Maybe you would be more familar with Richard Hammond's Engineering Connections?

 

Enduring understandings

 

Arithmetic (numeration)

  • Numbers are concepts that enable people to represent quantities, sequences, and rates.
  • Different number systems can represent the some quantities (e.g., bases).

 

Art

  • The greatest artists often break with established traditions and techniques to better express what they see and feel.
  • Available tools, techniques, and resources influence artistic expression.
  • Great art addresses universal themes of human existence.

 

Business and marketing

  • No business can successfully satisfy all consumers with the same product, so it must identify its target market.
  • Patterns of consumption inform production and marketing decisions.

 

Dance

  • Dance is a language of shape, space, timing, and energy.
  • Movement can communicate ideas and feelings.

 

Economics

  • In a free-market economy, price is a function of supply and demand.
  • Relative scarcity may lead to trade and economic interdependence or to conflict.

 

Foreign language

  • Studying other languages and cultures offers insights into our own.
  • Meaning is conveyed through phrasing, intonation, and syntax. (Just because you can translate all the words doesn’t mean you understand the speaker.)

 

Geography

  • The topography, climate, and natural resources of a region influence the conflict, economy, and lifestyle of its inhabitants.
  • All maps distort earth’s representation of area, shape, distance, and direction.

 

Government

  • Democratic government must balance the rights of individuals with the common good.
  • A written constitution sets forth the terms and limits of a government’s power.
  • Different political systems vary in their tolerance and encouragement of innovation.

 

Importants of asking Questions:

Thought- provoking essential questions are naturally generative. They lead to other important questions within, and sometimes across, subject boundaries. For example, in nature, do only the strong survive? Leads to what do mean by “strong”? Are insects strong (since they are survivors)? What does it mean to be psychologically strong? Inquiries into human biology and the physics of physiology also follow. The same important questions are asked throughout one’s learning and in the history of the field. For example, what makes a great book great? Are the harry potter novels great books? These questions can be productively examined and re-examined by 1st graders as well as college students. Over time, student responses become more sophisticated, nuanced, well-reasoned and supported as their understandings deepen. Essential questions challenge our unexamined assumptions, the inevitable simplification of our earlier learning, and the arguments we may unthinkingly take for granted. They force us to ask deep questions about the nature, origin, and extent of our understanding. For example, light of fractions, place value, irrationals, and negative square roots-what is a number? Is it “democratic” to have an electoral college? What is a friend? Can the enemy of my enemy by my friend? What is a story, if a story has no clear plot or moral? Is history more of a story then a science? What are the implications for studying history, if so?

History

  • What roles does music play in the world?

 

Physical education and athletics

  • Who is a winner?
  • Is pain necessary for progress in athletics? (“no pain ,no gain”)

 

Reading and language arts

  • What makes a great story?
  • How do you read between the lines?
  • Why do we punctuate? What if we didn’t have punctuation marks?

 

Science

  • To what extent are science and common sense related?
  • How are “from” and “function” related in biology?

 

Technology

  • In what ways can technology enhance expression and communication? In what ways might technology hinder it?
  • What are the pros and cons of technological progress

 

Writing

Reasons to be Qualified 

An example as to why you would want to be a trained professional is so you can be listened to, and your words are likely to be heard when you are a trained professional with qualifications to prove it. For example, to overrule a VISA Decision, you would need to be a politician or lawyer to apply for such a thing like this: http://www.aat.gov.au/applying-for-a-review-1
