Because you need to learn at a level that is 1 or 2 times higher than you actually need to do your job. That way, what you do is easy in comparison.

I was great at math and my instructor said that I did not need to attend his class - just show up for the tests. It is another example of forgetting more than the kids ever knew.

I have found it amazing that people need to calculate the Big-0, because it is obvious that a loop inside a loop (inside a loop) is not efficient. But, it is always nice to have a mathematical proof; even if they do not understand it.

Do I calculate the Big-0 on my algorithms? No.
Do I use calculus? No.
Do I use Algebra? Occasionally.
Do I remember how to calculate the area under a curve. No.
Have I used math on a daily bases to get the job done? Yes.

Have I forgot 90% of what I learn. Yes.
