Math & Careers
Many jobs involve math. According to the Journal of Market Research, 94% of all U.S. workers use some kind of math on the job. Some jobs require basic arithmetic and others require college-level math like inferential statistics or calculus.
If you are not in a math intensive job, quantitative reasoning skills are still important to adult decision-making. For example, we will all need to understand enough math to choose the best credit card or car loan, to understand the risk involved with health care treatments or financial decisions, and to interpret graphs and other diagrams.
Math majors have access to a wide range of jobs, particularly if they also have computer science skills and a statistics background.
