Reading is more important than math
Debate Rounds (3)
Your argument is flawed from the beginning. I will dissect your argument and prove it wrong
"Reading includes vocabulary, when reading a math problem, you must know what all the words mean."
Using your definition of vocabulary(you know what the word means) you prove yourself wrong. People have to know what words mean to be able to have a conversation, and many people can talk without being able to read. As you can still have vocabulary without reading, the ability to read is not necessary to do a math problem. Also most math problems do not have words in them so vocabulary is not required to read them. Although you said problems, I can see that you might have meant story problems which do have words in them. This is wrong as you assume that being able to do story problems is important, which outside of school it is unlikely for you to do them.
"You will use reading more than you use math later in life."
This is dependent on what profession someone will have. There are people who have ran businesses, invented things, etc...., without being able to read.
Pro gives unsupported facts, and gives one flawed example of what reading can do. They then state a statement that is dependent on who the person is. Pro in no way proves that reading is more important then math in their statement.
My opponent conceded.
We can all see that!
