I left HS with more math than many but my 'college prep' curriculum didn't

with basic math so that they could learn a trade and make their way in

You can imagine the eye-opening I got when I first hired on as a machinist
and had to calculate the x-y coordinates for 11 holes on a 12 hole pattern
with a radius of 1.876".
I got another eye-opening when I had to actually drill the holes on
location and to spec per runout and finish.
I was about 40 years old before I ever stepped foot into a college class.
