2: Algebra in the Stars? Space. It existed long before math was a common knowledge, before humans discovered wheels or made calendars, and even before civilization itself erupted from prehistory. Now, we use math and space in conjunction with each other in order to explore our vast, sprawling solar system. When humans go or send something into space, there are countless aspects of the launch and/or orbit that need to be dealt with. Most of these involve mathematical procedures. For example, every NASA employee who is required to launch satellites needs to know how to | calculate the launch precisely so that the satellite reaches geosynchronous orbit. After launching the satellite, NASA needs to make the right calculations when tracking the position of the satellite as it navigates through space. Another example of math occurrences in space is when an astronaut finds the oxygen level they need in order to launch. After launching, he or she must determine how clocks at lower potentials in a gravitational field, such as close to a planet, run slower than clocks down at Earth. This is called gravitational time dilation. The astronaut would need
3: to adjust the clocks until they were back on “Earth time”. Lastly, math is used in space when calculating how far a spaceship will go in a certain time at a set acceleration. This is called the Newtonian Constant Acceleration in G’s. Also, length and time conversions are vital to any successful space launch. As proven above, math is used frequently in our investigations of space and the solar system. It is crucial in launches, calculations, and updates. Math is used in almost every aspect of space travel, and we will continued to utilize it as we learn more | and more about our great universe.
4: Futures in Math Mechanical Engineer: What they are: Mechanical engineers are typically involved with the generation, distribution, and use of energy; the processing of materials; the control and automation of manufacturing systems; the design and development of machines; and the solutions to environmental problems How they use math: Mechanical engineers are also expected to understand and be able to apply basic concepts from chemistry and physics. Most mechanical engineering programs include several semesters as well as advanced mathematical concepts. | Most mechanical engineering programs also require varying amounts of research or community projects to gain practical problem-solving experience. Mechanical engineers have to know certain levels of math before even reaching college. Most need to have a Pre-Calculus math level. Math is a major portion of becoming a mechanical engineer. Economist: What they do: Economists do research. They prepare surveys to collect data and then figure out what the data means.
5: They also forecast how the economy might change in the future. Economists study topics such as prices, jobs, taxes, interest rates, and the stock market. How they use math: Economist use math when having to calculate or predict how the economy might change based on past data. They study prices, jobs, taxes, intrest rates and stock markets. Teacher : What they do: Teachers work in a | variety of places, some teaching kindergarteners and some teaching college students. In general, teachers teach students new information to help the child or young adult grow and prepare to be an adult How they use math: If teachers teach elementary school usually they have to work for different grades and different levels. Some teach harder concepts while others do simpler, basic math. If a teacher works for a middle school or high-school and they teach math, they are usually a specialized math teacher and had to take a course in college only based on math. Like any teacher doing some form of child development, they need to learn
6: and understand math at the levels they teach., no matter what subject they specialize in.
7: Women+Math=Success There are many women that bring a great deal of knowledge to our math today. These women have been studying math all their lives. Some of them include... Karen E. Smith : a women that lived in New Jersey all her life to find out that her future was going to be graduating from Princeton University in 1987. With her past in Princeton, she got the authority to be able to teach high schools in New Jersey. After a year of teaching, she decided to go to a graduate school in the midwest to get full support with a Ph.D. | The graduate school she attended was at the University of Michigan that she graduated from in 1993. Karen is now teaching and doing research in algebraic geometry and commutative algrebra at the University of Michigan after turning down jobs around the United States. She turned down the jobs so she could fulfill her life with her husband and kids. Karen Smith has brought her mathmatic skills all over New Jersey and Michigan.
8: Abigail Thompson : a women that lived in Conneticut throughout her life studying in math to get a scholarship in Wellesley College in 1979 but later got her Ph.D. in Rutgers University. She also held a Lady Davis Felllowship at Hebrew University which is made for people who are scholars or have science majors. Afterwards she joined the institute of advanced study. There are many woman that have conquered the sophisticated subject of math which has changed the daily lives of people around the world.
