When Will I Ever Use This?
The question I hear most often from students every year is, "When are we ever going to use this?" Usually, it's asked by exasperated students in the middle of learning a challenging concept, but it's certainly a valid question. I did some research and found a few nice websites that provide some information on the topic.
The Mathematical Association of America has a page devoted to career paths available to those who choose to major in mathematics. Click here to find out more.
WeUseMath.org is an interesting site that offers a look at math-related careers (and their lucrative salaries), a "Did you know?" section, and some advice on how to succeed in math. Enjoy!
