TOEFL Essay Topic 124 - 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.
History or Science
Some people believe that students should study history and it’s more important than mathematics and other sciences while the others like me disagree with this idea. History, literature and sciences are all helpful to improve but in my opinion learning sciences and mathematics have more benefites.
My first reason is that you need strange logic to understand the secret points in history. People study history to know different cultures and take lessons from the ancient people’s failors and succeses. I think you can comperhend the logic behind the events in history if you can use logic in your daily life. Mathematics is one of the best way of learning to use logic. If we don’t recognize the relation between events in history and don’t find their general structure then we can’t utilize them in our lives.
I explain one fact as my second reason. The fact is we live in the century of advanced technology and our children should learn the knowledg which is appropriat for their time. They always can read the history books but learning mathematics and other sciences would be easier when they are child. Some of science’s explorations show that people who learn mathematics and science in schools are more successful that the people who learn these in collage or don’t learn these at all.
Furthermore we need mathematics and sciences in our daily livies. It is possible to live without any kowledge about the history but learning mathematics in first levels is indispensible. You can live without knowing any thing about Edison despite the fact that you should learn about his discoveries.
We can conclude from what I said that students should study both type of fields but we should admit that the advantages of studying mathematics is more effective.
