Math is important you hate Knowledge to reject such a notion because t mock the wise man is to mock wisdom. By denying this motion you are mocking all the wise men and therefore wisdom.
BIGC

Con

I don't disagree that math is important, but there are other subjects that are more important. such as English or History. As George Washington once said "those that don't know history are bound to repeat it"

George Washington is dead therefore he is not a legitimate source many people could have billions of sources more relevant and better than a man who was essentially against all that we know today. So your bases of Washington holds no ground. Were as an important person or people such as their which is need of many people who are good at math for things such aeronautics and other things that are necessarily to defending our country from terrorists such as Isis. where as history holds little to no ground since people change and unable to repeat history.
BIGC

Con

George Washington stands for almost every thing that we hold dear today. By your logic Math would be irreverent because the person that made math is dead, so therefor you point is invalid. English is more important that Math because without English you would not even be able to learn Math. You must know English before you for Math. Therefor English is more important that Math. so math is not the most important subject.

Math mostly consists of number. Numbers are not the same as letters so if taught binary you no longer have the need for English and binary is the code of computers. We need computers to do most things we have today. Computers use have a lot of algorithms. Algorithms that math provides. Therefore it is necessary to know have math more than English because there are more uses for math and math can replace every aspect of English classes. As well as there is not a time in your life where math wont be necessary.
BIGC

Con

you can not ever do Math without English. Definitions is in every aspect of Math, and what is Definitions? English!!! There is not one day in your life that you did not use English. I can name plenty of things that I don't use Math for, but English is in every single aspect of your life! English is more important, so therefor English is not the most important subject.

If you can't read, then all other subjects become meaningless. English is the most important.

Reasons for voting decision: A quick glance at the first round told me who would get the spelling and grammar point. Con used facts (even false ones) along with reason, while Pro only used facts.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's rebuttal was kind of ridiculous and I enjoyed cons counter to it, turning the tables on him by using his same logic. Con overall did a much better job with both rebuttals and points.
