The needs for mathematics is inevitable. Higher and more advanced. More demanding and more challenging. One should master at least calculus and statistics to cope with 150-years-ago knowledge. Today’s society demands its civilized being to have a familiar background on computational / programming course.

The question ‘Oh jurusan X banyak matematikanya nggak? Aku ambil jurusan Y aja deh. Gak ada matematika nya’ is outdated. Everything now is mathematics (and physics & programming) function.

100 years ago, psychology is not even considered too mathematical, or one should say, it has no mathematics. Nowadays, you see that the debates on Brain and Cognitive Sciences is fully comprised of mathematics (and physics & programming too, like a lot).

100 years ago, sociology is not even considered too mathematical, or one should say it has no mathematics. Today, I just read that some people try to disrupt this knowledge with some mathematics (agent based). Well actually it is not ‘Now’. Since Irving Fisher got his degree from Yale, sociology has always been disrupted.

I see that our civilization gives us a clear indication that the higher and the more advanced our mathematics, our technological progress will always grow. Thus, our civilization become better and better.

Learn mathematics, before it’s too late.
