The topic I have chosen to write about for this paper is how I use math in my life both as a child and as an adult.
I use math to balance my checkbook and to budget my monthly expenses as an adult.
From that early age, I learned the importance of money management and the math skills involved.
I learned that there were four quarters in a dollar, and if I bought a non-food item—like a handful of balloons—that I was going to need to come up with six cents for every dollar I spent.
Every essay or assignment you write must begin with an introduction.
It might be helpful to think of the introduction as an inverted pyramid.
Instead, you might try to make the reader see why this is such an important topic to discuss.
Finally, this sample introduction is lacking a clear thesis statement.
“A penny saved is a penny earned,” the well-known quote by Ben Franklin, is an expression I have never quite understood, because to me it seems that any penny—whether saved or spent—is still earned no matter what is done with it.
My earliest memories of earning and spending money are when I was ten years old when I would sell Dixie cups of too-sweet lemonade and bags of salty popcorn to the neighborhood kids.
