Math is the basis of everything cool, like games and computers. The more gooder you are at it, the more gooder technology will becom.

Art/Music is shit-tier? Yeah, right! For one thing, art is related in so many ways to math, especially music. And artwork, be it CG or real-life drawing, utilizes geometry and such. Both also require good imagination and this is something that cannot be taught in a conventional manner.

I got that part but I still don't get the reason. How does it effect? And what kind of relation is there between math and super mario brothers. I am pretty sure dividing is the highest leveled math equation that sihgaru mayamtoo knows off.

You guys are on to something. I think there is something I am missing. Something I do not understand here.

Engineering is suppose to apply the math and other stuff you learned under real world constraints to find an elegant and efficient solution to our problem. Therefore it should be even higher then God Tier. I suggest a new tier level called paper.

Also, Bio-Engineer here representing!

That sentence is full of so much win!

Anyway, math must be done and programmed into the game and the console itself to even make Mario move when you press a button. And then math determines how high he jumps and when he starts falling back down towards the ground at the height of that jump. The CPU does most of these calculations automatically depending on what the equations in the game program tell it to do, but without an understanding of math the CPU wouldn't even exist in the first place!

I used to be awesome at math, then I started playing video games which led to me skipping school to play them!

Video games in turn can help your English skills. It's win win.

I went here today. I brought my Kryptonite just in case you-know-who tried to stop me.
