How about, why do I need math?
Where can it take me?
What can I do with it?
A different kind of math \$\$\$
Awesome, How can I get there? Why Math? Let's start with the basics

2+2=4 Day to day Sightings \$\$\$\$ Dolla' Dolla' Bills Another Kind of Math For Starters, let's get to know Algebra a little better... Let's take a look inside... Raise your hands if you ask
yourself this question everyday? How many of you guys think that you'll never use math again after high school? How many of you know how to speak? How many of you have ever been in an argument? That's MATH!!! Example:

Conditional Statements:

Socrates is a man
All men are Mortals

Conclusion:
Socrates is a mortal Written in terms of math:

A = B
B = C

A = C What might I use this type of math for?

English

Science

Law

Logic

Philosophy

Politics

Journalism

Etc. So where can math take me in the traditional sense? I'll Start you guys out...

Teachers,

More? The Big Bang Theory

Others?... I have suckers Television: What types of math do we see with The Big Bang Theory
Engineering
Focus on efficiency and structural soundness, bridges, buildings, electricity, welding, chemistry, medicine, cars, toilets, packaging, if it has been made, it has at some time been engineered by something
Astronomy
Study of planets, stars, blackholes, molecules, nuclear power, anything space related

astronaut, astronomer, analyst, nuclear physicist,
professor, etc. Physics
Study of matter in motion and relation. Study atoms, cars, space, gravity, light, neutrinos etc.

Can become a:
Physicist,
Engineer,
Professor,
Atronomer,
Chemist Chemistry
focus on structure of elements within our world and the usage of those.

Meteorology (weather)
Engineers
Chemist
Pharmacists
Professor
teacher
Geologist
Doctor

Entrepreneurs
Finance
Economics
Accounting
Law
Marketing
Advertising Let's talk about the average yearly earnings of some of these degrees: Engineers Starting Salary is around
\$75,000 a year! More complex engineering such as chemical/biomedical usually make about

\$100,000 a year! Professors

Depending on the University the average salary of a professor in the math field can range from \$70,000 a year to \$140,000 a year! Astronomers

make around \$95,000 a year on average Doctors of sorts: Specialty doctors (dermatologist, allergist) make 200 -300,000 a year Dentists, typical Doctors that you see when you have a cold or the flu, depending on location make anywhere from \$90,000 - 150,000 a year on average Bottom Line: Math is the gateway to some of the coolest careers, and the salary isn't too bad either!!!!

Q's?

onetonline.org The path...

All of the things that we looked at require training aka an education of some sort after high school... whether that is a university, community college, vocational program, the military, etc.

Let's do some exploring...
