I work in a technical field, and use math all the time, but knowing and memorizing forumulaes is not needed. What is needed for me is to UNDERSTAND the relationships and ratios and having a strong grasp of basic arithmetic and understanding the concepts of what the calculations mean, then I don't need no 'stinkin formulas, I can visualize the problem and figure it out myself!
I found math VERY hard in school, because I found that there was no underlying understanding as to WHY we were doing things a certain way. You were suppoosed to just memorize the steps of the calculations.
Once in a working environment, the training I received was showing me why we needed to calculate stuff, and how the different calculations all intermeshed logically, it all became easy and common sense.
