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.
Study of history or literature
Some people may say that the study of history or literature is quite important for school, but rather I believe that for students it is better to study science or mathematics at school, since science or mathematics are more practical to live in our society.
The skill of mathematics is required for almost all occupations after you graduate from school, and join in some companies.If you participate in sales team in the company, you have to calculate the revenue or profits of your company. If you are located to accont section at your company, you will always calculate the cash flow of your company. Almost no section at company does not require the mathematic skills for this job. My colleague, Mr Takashi, is good at mathematic skills. We are working at sales team at vehicle compnay. Mr Takashi’s higher skills of calculation always helps his higher evaluation from his boss. He can quickly make spread sheet or sales strategies due to his strongness of his mathematics skill. His higher evaluation proves the usefulness of mathematic skills.
Science is also important for our soceity. Almost every gadgets around us is made by the combination of science. Thanks to the science, there is a lot of chemical components brought to our society. Whithout science, no gadgets scuh as PC or smart phone can be made. Better microchip or display of smartphone or computer can be made due to the advance of science. The field of science is quite important for the advancement of our society.
As I discribe above, mathematical and science is practical and indispensable for our scoeity, but I don’t have a intention to say that history or literature is not useful for our society at all. From the point of usefulness for our society, however, the mathematic is more utility skill. In sales team, mathematic skill is required, but the knowlesge of American history does not contributes the performance of sales quickly. The strong background of literature does not play an important role to develop the function of computer. In this point, we can conclude that mathematic or science skills are more useful for our life.
It is obviously better for students to study more practical skills, and that is why, it is mathematic, or science that are better subject for students to study at school.
