Topic: Do you agree or disagree with the following statement. It is more important for students to study history and literature than it is for them to study science and mathematics. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
Today, education is a valuable issue for any person. Some people say that it is more important for students to study history and literature than it is for them to study science and mathematics. Literature and history, math and sciences have their own advantages. However, I believe that study math and science has more advantages than literature and the history. As follow, I will explain the reasons why.
To begin with, when a child stars school, one of the first things that he/she learns are mathematics and language. Mathematics develops our mind, by using reasoning and logic to solve problems. For example, when I was attending high school, I remember one of my professors saying: “He/she who is good in math is good in everything else.” Math has sets of rules and laws that help people to calculate. In addition, science is a method of discovering knowledge about natural world based in making hypotheses, testing them, and using experiments to prove. Science has enormous influence on our lives. It provides the basis of much of modern technology, such as tools, materials, techniques and sources of power that makes our lives and work easier.
Secondly, when a student studies math and science, that doesn’t mean they will become scientists; but those classes develop thinking processes that help students use logic, which assists them to become better thinkers. Therefore, by developing and improving thinking, students will be able to solve most of the problems that appear and anything they may do later on in their lives. So, schools prepare students not only to choose and learn their professions, but by studying different subjects they help learners to develop many different skills such as logic thinking, memorizing etc.
To sum it up, I disagree that it is more important for students to study history and literature than it is for them to study science and mathematics. Because of its valuable importance, math and science help students use logic and reasoning to solve their problems, and develop thinking process, which will comfort their daily life and work.
