Possibilities endless for math majors

Wonderful to see the article about math education.

One thing you failed to point out in the sidebar is the other paths math majors pursue. As anyone who studies math realizes, the skills of “math majors” permeate practically (and depending upon whom you query) every walk of life.

I continued on into medicine, specifically the sub-specialty of neonatal critical care. This field blends the liberal arts and mathematical arts perfectly. And with electronic medical records overtaking the medical society, a mathematically trained, logically minded individual has a tremendous advantage. And that doesn’t even include the need to be facile with numbers, equations and the pure act of decision making ... call it a different branch of game theory.

So please let the math majors know that the possibilities are endless. Math is the basis for life.
