    what have you done so far? have you consulted google or wikipedia? have you considered things like economics, medicine, sociology, political science, demographics...? all these fields use "curves"

    Hello,

    I can give you only some hints:

    1. You use curves to show the dependencies between values which are the results of processes. That's what Jhevon pointed out.

    2. You can use the curve itself for instance at railway tracks, streets, pipe lines. All these curves have to be "smooth" without any edges and you can't force a train to perform a very abrupt change of direction.

    Look at bridges: All those arcs and columns, those cables of a suspension bridge form a very complicated curve.

    Look at the surface of water: The form of waves is pure math.

    Have a look at a cobweb ...

    I hope that you have now a few points where you can do additional research.

    In Mathematics a curve has a quite precise meaning, that is closely related to, but not exactly the same as, the common everyday use of the term.

    A mathematical curve describes the way two or more things vary in response to changes in the other things.

    For example take an elastic band, its thickness and length are related to how hard you pull the ends.
    If you plot the points of thickness against length on a graph, the result will be a curve.
    I guess that that is where the name comes from?

    In Mathematics a straight line is a curve!

    I've just re-read what I've written, and I'm not sure if it will help you, but there it is...

    I assume that this is for school homework, only a teacher could pose such an open ended, vauge question!

    Good Luck
    Mark.

    Further waffling

    I was just thinking back to my school days (in the long long ago)

    To a large extent what the teacher wanted in respose to vague homework titles was heavily dependent on where we were in the curriculum.
    Generally what you were being taught this week, or even today...

    For example I remember a short time during my school days when curve sketching involved identifying the positions of maxima, minima and inflexions of a function, then sketching in the curve between these points.

    Look back at what your teacher was rambling on about in your last few lessons and try to see how that relates to "The importance of curves sketches in the real world"
