Exactly. It’s a shame that we spend time learning anything without any context for using it.

I took a calculus class as an adult. It started off horribly. The teacher was a would-be comedian who wasted class time trying to make us laugh.

Then he got appendicitis, and didn’t return.

His replacement taught us calculus. If she had been my professor the whole time, I’d probably still remember some calculus today.

Context is everything.
