Con

is mathematics import.
yes I agree that mathematics is import because it helps us in your daily life because if we want to become a cashier they need to know mathematics to count the money. if we do not know mathematics most likely you can not work or have a job because every job comes back to math so that why you should know mathematics.

I am assuming that Con means you think mathematics are improtant.
Con has the burden of proof because he is affirming the resolution.

every job comes back to math so that why you should know mathematics.
This is not true. Every job doesn't come back to math.
Examples:
Comedian
Custodian
Photographer
Metal Smither
Artist
Scribe


These are all jobs that do not require skills in mathematics.
Besides, do you really think you need to learn Calculus to be a chef.

Math is not important because we live in a world where we use our right brain in the work force.
The right side of our brain basically controls our creativity.
In the work force now, there is a need for more right sided thinkers (people who are creative) than left sided thinkers (people who stick to facts and numbers).
Because of that, math is not important and/or has a lesser importance than critical thinking.

Con has committed bad conduct by plagiarizing a comment from the comments posted in the debate comment section below. However, I will refute this.

Without math we would have nothing.
You can still read without math.

Math is probley one of the most important things that has ever been invented
Math wasn't invented.

My arguments were dropped.

Vote Pro. Con has not met the burden of proof.

Well, CON didn't really provide a good case for his position. PRO did refute CON's points, to which CON did not even attempt to counter-argue. Conduct to PRO for plagiarism, S&G to PRO for obvious reasons, arguments to PRO.

Likespace, sorry, for the confusion. I could have sworn that your comment and vote were contradictory. Okay, changing my vote to neutral.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct for plaigarism. Spelling and grammar because of words like "probley". Arguments because of plaigarism and con simply did not meet the bop. Sources because pro used sources.

Reasons for voting decision: Con plagiarized. ("out math we would have nothing. Math is probley one of the most important things that has ever been invented.") Even without this, Con would have been losing, as they did not respond to any of Pro's points. Dylan, I double-checked and instigator/con is the one who plagiarized so my pro vote's justified.
