2: Careers in Math If you are trying to get a job that requires a good math ability then we have some suggestions for you. Some of the jobs are: medicine, computer science, physics, engineering, and biology. Math is a very important quality in any job. In some of these careers math is essential to thrive in the chosen careers. For medicine you need to have a good math ability because when you are trying to help a person with diabetes it is essential. When trying to help cure diabetes you will need to calculate how much insulin the patient will get. Depending on how much carbohydrates the patient has determines how much insulin will be given. Every fifteen carbohydrates that the patient has is one unit of insulin that they will get. There are two types of insulin, one that works fast but ends fast, and one that takes a while to come into effect but lasts longer. Another job that requires a good math skill is being a Math Teacher. For being a math teacher you obviously need to have a
3: good math ability because, hello you’re a MATH teacher. You will need to be able to teach the material to the student and explain it when they are having a hard time. You also just need to be able to use math in real life situations because math is found everywhere. Another Job is just being a regular person. Math is found everywhere from reading clocks to doing your taxes to counting how much money you have. Math is essential to life if you can’t do math you will have a hard time living a good life. One Job that requires mathamatics is Egineering. For this job you must be able to create products for the company that you work for. You will need to be able to program the technology that you will be required to create.
4: Women in Math here have been and still are many women that are involved in the career of mathematics. One of the women who influenced our society in math is Beverly Anderson, an African American Director of Minority Programs at the Mathematical Sciences Education Board of the National Research Council in 1990. She had a bachelor’s and master’s degree in mathematics, and a PhD in mathematics education from the Catholic University of America. She taught at the University of the District of Colombia establishing a national alliance of nearly fifty organizations to coordinate and support programs to help minorities excel in mathematics. Beverly had worked very hard and got success throughout her career on increasing minority participation in mathematics. Then she took a leave of absence from the University to take her NRC position. Beverly said that one of the most rewarding projects she did was a summer program in mathematics and computer science for 8th and 9th graders. And this
5: project had many kids from private and public school, black and white children but Beverly’s main goal was to get everyone to work “side by side”. Beverly Anderson was one of the many women who excelled and helped many people in the field of mathematics throughout history.

7: Karl Friederich Goss Karl Gauss was the best mathematician of his time and he is considered as the “prince of Mathematics”. Even though his fathers has always been a person with hands on labor. He noticed his child’s prodigiousness even before the age of 5. It is told that when he was three years old he found an arithmetical error in his father’s payroll. In school his teacher made the students add the integers from 1to 100. Gauss found a shortcut by paring up the numbers of the opposite ends and multiplying by the number of couples (answer=5050) Gauss proved the fundamental theorem of algebra that says that every polynomial has a root of +Bi. When he proved that people did not believe him, so he gave four different proofs. He
8: gave the first proof in 1801, called the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, which states that every number can be broken down into a prime nymber in the form of a+bi.In his 1799 doctorate in absentia, A new proof of the theorem that every integral rational algebraic function of one variable can be resolved into real factors of the first or second degree, Gauss proved the fundamental theorem of algebra which states that every non-constant single-variable polynomial over the complex numbers has at least one root. Mathematicians including Jean le Rond d'Alembert had produced false proofs before him, and Gauss's dissertation contains a critique of d'Alembert's work. Ironically, by today's standard, Gauss's own attempt is not acceptable, owing to implicit use of the Jordan curve theorem. However, he subsequently produced three other proofs, the last one in 1849 being generally rigorous. His attempts clarified the concept of complex numbers considerably along the way.
9: Einstein's many contributions to physics include: The special theory of relativity, which reconciled mechanics with electromagnetism. The general theory of relativity, a new theory of gravitation obeying the equivalence principle. Founding of relativistic cosmology with a cosmological constant.The first post-Newtonian expansion, explaining the perihelion advance of planet Mercury. Prediction of the deflection of light by gravity and gravitational lensing. An explanation for physysics. | Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist. He is best known for his theory of relativity and specifically mass–energy equivalence, expressed by the equation E = mc2. Einstein received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect."
10: capillary action. The first fluctuation dissipation theorem which explained the Brownian movement of molecules. The photon theory and wave-particle duality derived from the thermodynamic properties of light.The quantum theory of atomic motion in solids. Zero-point energy.The semiclassical version of the Schrodinger equation. Relations for atomic transition probabilities which predicted stimulated emission. The quantum theory of a monatomic gas which predicted Bose-Einstein condensation. The EPR paradox, A program for a unified field theory The geometrization of fundamental physics
11: Alexandra Bellow was also one of the many women in mathematics who influenced our society in mathematics today. Alexandra was born in Bucharest, Romania and both of her parents taught math to young children. Alexandra was inspired by her high school math teacher to pursue a further career in mathematics. She graduated from the University of Bucharest in 1957 with an MA degree. In the fall of that year she came to the US with her husband, she came because her husband C. Ionescu Tulcea was invited to a special year in functional analysis at Yale University. She went to graduate school and got her PhD at Yale in 1959. Her profession led her to the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and to Northwestern University where she became a full professor in mathematics in 1968. In her life as a mathematician she found that her interests were drawn toward many different theories which led her to be a remembered mathematician in history.
