Re: Top 15 highest-earning college degrees need math skills

There are far fewer people graduating with math-based majors, compared to their liberal-arts counterparts

So few grads offer math skills

I have the solution. The gov. should just hire Britney and Rihanna's press agent for math majors.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
