Okay, see you later.
It varies. A lot of mathematicians like to work in the financial sector mostly because it pays so well. I think most of the ones I've talked to on my course want to do that. Haven't met a single one who wanted to lecture, though. All three girls I've talked to said they wanted to be maths teachers at high-school level.
That is true, wherever they use math. Pay over here is pretty good for them. How is it over there?
That is one thing that I did like about studying a degree in mathematics -- lots of potential career paths.
Those are two possibilities but some companies hire mathematicians to solve problems for them.
You mean like working in risk management or as an actuary, for example?
I meant in the capacity of a math consultant, a problem solver.
I would do it but probably not for long. It's difficult for me to say if I'd enjoy it because I have no industrial experience. With teaching, at least I have a fairly good idea of what it entails, having been around them for so long.
I meant working in industry or government instead of any type of teaching.
By teacher, do you mean a high-school teacher? And by lab, what sort of lab?
Do you think you would rather work in a lab then a teacher?
Agreed. I am very much glad those years are behind me...
Back in the old days you only had to worry about getting into a fistfight with another kid your same age and size. Nowadays, kids carry guns and other weapons. They travel in packs like wild dogs and stomp on a person when he is down. They have no honor, no integrity and no future other than prison or the city morgue. Pretty bleak in my opinion.
It can be terrifying at times but I still managed to enjoy it on occasion.
Yes, there are. I am glad I do not have to go to the modern school.
