Mathematical Problem SolvingNobody can deny the joy that comes with playing a sport, or learning to play an instrument. Partaking in either of these activities can even give a student important life skills. However, what about the benefits that come from investing in your academic future, particularly in mathematics?

“Choose math because you will meet it more and more in the future. Math becomes more and more important in all areas of work and scholarship. Future journalists and politicians will talk less and analyze more. Future police officers and military personnel will use more and more complicated technology. Future nurses and teachers will have to relate to numbers and technology every day. Future car mechanics and carpenters will use chip-optimization and stress analysis as much as monkey wrenches and hammers. There will be more math at work, so you will need more math at school.”
