Math is applied everyday, in everything that we do.
You don't have to be an engineer or a scientist, or a mathematican for that matter, to use math.
Let's say you want to be a Librarian when you're older, you will count books, receipts, money you receive or exchange and in many other ways.
Or you can be a History teacher, in which math will still be a concept you have to be somewhat familiar with. Let's say George Washington was born in 1732 (which he was) and he died in 1799 (which he did), then how old was he when he died? The answer would be 67.
Sure, these future professions don't involve Calculus or Trig, but they still involve the basic concepts of math.
