I just wanted to clarify that the reason I said that is that the study of
native fishes, in comparison to mathematics would probably be more
interesting to kids in school because it just seems like it would be the more
"charismatic" course out of the two. All of the wierd and interesting facts
there are to be learned about native fishes seem like they would "out do"
math when competing for kids' interest.I know many people that think of math
as being somewhat dry and dull in comparison to history or science. But it is
still necessessary to learn math, and it helps to learn math if you can
cultivate an interest in it.
