2: An Exciting Math Career An Actuary is rated one of the top 10 jobs in the U.S. Actuaries are people who have the opportunity to make a difference in major issues facing us right now like; retirement, global warming, technology, and Insurances. An Actuary is an expert that finds ways to manage risks. You must have an extremely strong math and statistics background. Managing the probability of risk allows people to make better decisions. Actuaries have an intellectually challenging job because they are evaluating future events, finding creative Anissa Morales | ways to reduce risk, and reducing the impact of undesirable events that occur. An Actuary is paid very well with the salary ranging from $58,710 to $114,570. Actuaries typically love their job. In a rapid changing world, new risks, and finding new ways to attack them, an Actuary is always experiencing new opportunities for professional growth. They are key players in driving decisions in businesses. Another type of Actuary is called an Enrolled Actuary. This type of Actuary analyzes risks involved with retirement plans in the U.S. You must pass the Enrolled Acutary examinations to be licenced by a Joint Board of The Department of Treasury and Department of Labor in the U.S. An Enrolled Actuary work for consulting firms that focus on employee benefits, as well as, large accounting audit firms.

4: Throughout mathematic history, there have been many women that have contributed towards what we know today. Danica McKellar and Elizabeth Buchanan Cowley are just two of some of the most remarkable women in mathematic history. Danica McKellar was an actress and then quit to earn her PhD She then ended up writing two best sellers. Elizabeth Buchanan Cowley graduated from the Indiana States Normal School of Pennsylvania when she was 19 years old, and later went off and wrote many books, and articles. | Danica McKellar was born in 1975 and started acting when she was only 10 years old. After her hit series The Wonder Years ended, she decided to graduate from college with a degree in mathematics. She proved a new math theorem called the Chayes-McKellar-Winn Theorem. Danica also wrote two best sellers called Math Doesn’t Suck: How I Survived Middle School without Breaking | Women In Math Elizabeth Gladden

In the late 1800s, Elizabeth Cowley graduated from college when she was 19 years old. She earned her A.B. degree in mathematics in 1901 and her A.M. degree in 1902. Elizabeth Cowley also spent the summers of 1903, 1904, and 1905 studying mathematics; she then earned her PhD in mathematics in early 1906. She taught at Vassar College from 1902 to 1926. She resigned in 1929, and taught at a high school in Pittsburg. Elizabeth Cowley wrote two books, and a number of articles that were published in journals. | There are many women that have and still are contributing to mathematics. Women like Elizabeth Cowley and Danica McKellar have done very remarkable things in math. There are many other women that have done impressive things throughout mathematical history.

7: Albert Einstein Kendra Schafer | Throughout history famous Mathematicians have made amazing discoveries that have affected our lives. One of the most famous Mathematicians is Albert Einstein. He was born in Elm, Germany on March 14, 1879. As a child, Einstein’s parents worried that he was mental challenged, for he showed very little intelligence and did poorly in his classes. But Einstein wasn’t dumb or retarded; he just liked to learn things in own way. He preferred to | teach himself and by his teenage years, he had taught himself advanced mathematics and science. By the time he was in high school, Einstein planned to attend Swiss Polytechnic University in 1835, instead of finishing high school. But when his plans were rejected, he moved Aarau, Switzerland to complete high school. When he was 17 seventeen he enrolled at the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich and graduated | in 1900 with a physics degree. Even after college, his studies and interests continued, making many contributions to the world. In 1905, when he was just 26, he published an article on his theory of relativity, proving to the world that he any increase in the energy of a body, must lead to a corresponding increase in its mass. The same year he also published many other articles, concerning the quantum law, the emission and absorption of light, Brownian motion, the inertia of energy, and the electrodynamics of moving bodies. As result of his research, he won the Nobel Prize for physics in 1921.

8: absorption of light, Brownian motion, the inertia of energy, and the electrodynamics of moving bodies. As result of his research, he won the Nobel Prize for physics in 1921. In 1914, he traveled to Europe, where he became a professor at the University of Berlin and a member of the Royal Prussian Academy of Sciences. Later in 1933, he came to the United States and was given a job with the advanced study in Princeton, New Jersey. | Everywhere he went, he was allowed to use his own ideas and do his own research. He also helped the United States in war matter. In 1939, he wrote a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, expressing his belief that Germany was constructing an atomic bomb and suggested his ideas on how to solve this dilemma. But like many people, Einstein also had a family. He had a wife named Mileva Maric, but they got divorced in 1919. A year before | they were married, he and Mileva had a daughter who they put up for adoption. However, after their marriage they had two sons, who they chose to keep. After his divorce with Mileva, he married his cousin, Elsa Einstein. But eventually over the years he grew very ill. He ended up dying on April 18th, 1995 in Princeton, New Jersey. His brain was dedicated to science and his ashes were spread over a near-by river. During his life time, Albert Einstein used his skills of learning and understanding to make discoveries that the world benefitted from. Although some people criticize him and his work, Einstein is truly a remarkable genius who will never be forgotten.

10: So, you love math and you are afraid that you might lose your edge during those long summer months, then a summer math camp may be just the place for you. Each summer, schools and Universities across the country offer fun and exciting summer programs designed to help gifted and talents children explore the world of Mathematics. Kids as young as 11 can participate in programs intended to transform the gifted youth of today, into talented leaders of tomorrow. Every year the American Mathematical Society compiles a list of programs available to students who are interested in these very special camp programs and makes them available on their website. Many of these programs offer students the opportunity to live on a college campus for the duration of the program.

11: Camps like, “SWIM”- Summer Workshop in Mathematics, offered at the prestigious Princeton University. This program presents the opportunity for teens to spend 9 days working in groups on an exploration topic of their liking and will give participants a glimpse of life as a Princeton math undergraduate while living in a supervised dorm setting on campus. Still, other programs like MathPath offer exciting opportunities for the math minded middle school student. MathPath is a mathematical centered summer camp for students 11-14 years of age, which takes up residence on a different college campus each year. summer. | The 2009 campus of choice will be Colorado College in Colorado Springs, Co. Along with a rigorous and challenging math program the camp also offers various social and recreational experiences for its participants to enjoy. So math junkies have no fear, a multitude of opportunities await you this summer. There are programs available to virtually all those who have a passion for math. Check out the American Mathematical Society’s website to find the perfect prospect for your summer fun. They all add up to a summer filled with excitement and adventure. Kendra Schafer
