    Default Which is more useful in the real world?

    Writing or Math. You can only choose one.

    Writing, of course.

    Define "useful."



    Do you mean employable? More valued by society?

    I'm on Team Math for this one.

    First you get the maths, then you get the money, then you get the power.

    Call me a bitter ex-journo, but it's been my experience that almost no one -- NO ONE -- knows where to put apostrophes or how to spell correctly or how to write coherently -- and no one cares. I don't think writing is as valued as society as it should be -- sad!

    But a typo or a poorly written paragraph probably won't bring down a company, where a math error could.

    Writing, more than the observation of correct grammar usage, is an art of communication.

    I would say math, because it is more in demand. Hard to find people that know math really well, and easy to find people that have really good writing skills.
    Percentage wise that is.

    Writing, obviously.

    I'm going waaaaaaay out on a limb here, but math is a pretty visual thing. Ergo writing is kind of a necessity to even learn math in the first place. Math class conducted by audiobook might be a little, um, tough.


    I... suppose. Yeah!
