Economics and Geography

The study of how money works and the land that makes up a country. I feel these two subjects are often put together because they influence one another.

Computer programming

Computer programming is a process that leads from an original formulation of a computing problem to executable computer programs. Programming involves activities such as analysis, developing understanding, generating algorithms, verification of requ... irements of algorithms including their correctness and resource consumption, and implementation of algorithms in a target programming language. Source code is written in one or more programming languages. The purpose of programming is to find a sequence of instructions that will automate performing a specific task or solving a given problem. The process of programming thus often requires expertise in many different subjects, including knowledge of the application domain, specialized algorithms and formal logic.Related tasks include testing, debugging, and maintaining the source code, implementation of the build system, and management of derived artifacts such as machine code of computer programs. These might be considered part of the programming process, but often the term "software development" is used for this larger process with the term "programming", "implementation", or "coding" reserved for the actual writing of source code   more

Economics and geography are completely different

If you took any one of those out it would be disastrous..Well every kid doesn't need to be a computer programer but the other stuff yeah

No subject is more important than another

Science? Duh... I doubt it's useful for anyone who isn't planning to pursue a career in a related field. The one subject that will get you the farthest in life is English. Econ and geog are useful (unlike the hard sciences), though I don't see how they're that related. Of course, there are some overlaps (geog industrial agglomeration/econ external economies of scale, law of diminishing marginal returns), but I don't feel they're closely related overall.

We use math everyday. It is also impossible to do physics or chem without math.

Hmm, History. Circumvent having to perform the same experiments over again and move on to bigger and better things by learning more quickly from data that has already been collected and events that have already happened.

Math, everything is a form of applied mathematics.

I'm not sure which subject is most important but I would say general science, English, and math are just as important. When I was in middle and high school, some of my teachers would insist that English is more important than any other subject with a few saying English and math are the most important subjects. My dad, however, says that science and math are the most important subjects. Me and my dad like both of those subjects very much. At school, even science teachers would say that English is the most important subject. A friend of mine says that her father is a professor in art class and that her father says that art is the most important subject. I believe that many subjects contribute its own special thing though. Science definitely doesn't come without math. Music has to do with math too. Inventing a new instrument requires knowing physics and the frequency of the sounds resulted by specific things to invent it in a proper form. Music has brought lots of good things. However, many of those subjects also brought cursed things, like scientists making nasty business with making fake medicine that will rather make a patient gradually get worse for their convenience of making money or some singers making awful musics that has bad language and that isn't played with an official instrument but an online instrumental invented thing that has become the new popular, which I find weird. I wish today's music was like the 80's. Rap and hip hop just doesn't sound amusing to me.

No subject is more important than the other. Schools provide more subjects for students to learn, so that students can learn something out of each subject. This would give students an idea of each subject and helps students decide on which subject students like the most. This also provides more opportunities for students as they join the workforce.
