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!
