Yes. It means guys and gals have no time off to date each other, no time to watch late night TV  ...

re: guys and gals have no time off to date each other

Nowadays ol'chap, same sex dating is in...while the opposite sex dating (guys and gals) is out of date

Math Teaching. It is a singular subject with a singular adjective.

I don't think so although I wish so as a teacher in China!  There is much room for the improvement of Chinese maths textbooks!  Maths theory would be easy to understand if we teach it with more concrete shapes and practical experiments!
The most useful knowledge and skill that we are lack of is that of about human!

China does not teach to understand math, but to learn by rote.  But Western teaching methods focuses on understanding the underlying concepts.  Students are encouraged to open their minds and think outside the box.
