A question I often am asked by students is “when will I ever use this?”
Students I studied math with invented the internet, the iPhone, GPS, nanotechnology... they took math and did amazing things your job as my student is to show me what amazing things you are going to do with the math I taught you. Why would I teach you how it applied in the past when your job is to build the future.
I also did this a few years ago with my students at the time.
