In which careers do you need math? And what kind?

Have you ever had your youngster ask, "Why do I need to study math? Where do I need this stuff?"

Well if not yet, you can expect the question when they get into algebra. But even before your students ask, take them into certain websites and show them!

First, Math Careers Database at
- it's not actually about careers in math, but instead a list of occupations/jobs and what kind of math topics are needed in that particular job.

I've also written an article (earlier) touching on this topic and collected a few similar links. See Where do you need square roots or algebra? Why study math? - scroll down to the bottom to see the links.
