WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE MATH IN HIGH SCHOOL

Posted on: March 22, 2006

Here is a great piece explaining why you should choose to take math in high school (and I would add college as well): http://www.acm.org/ubiquity/views/v7i11_math.html

Some Is a Highlight:

Choose math because you will make more money. Winners of American Idol and other “celebrities” may make money, but only a tiny number of people have enough celebrity to make money, and most of them get stale after a few years. Then it is back to school, or to less rewarding careers (“Would you like fries with that?”). If you skip auditions and the sports channels and instead do your homework — especially math — you can go on to get an education that will get you a well-paid job. Much more than what pop singers and sports stars make — perhaps not right away, but certainly if you look at averages and calculate it over a lifetime.”
