    Are you intrigued by numbers, puzzles and problems? Are your heroes folks like Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein? Do you love studying how mathematics describes the world we live in, from the tiniest atom to the largest scales of the universe? Then a Mathematics major is right up your alley.

    Mathematics majors study all fields of math in the pursuit of understanding how numbers and equations describe the world we live in. They dig deep into algebra, physics, calculus, logic, geometry and statistics. Mathematics majors utilize their skills across a diversity of fields, applying what they learn to economics, science, and even fields like anthropology and the liberal arts.

    Useful courses in high school include all things math: advanced trigonometry, calculus, discrete math, computer science, statistics, and algebra.

    Mathematics majors find work often in the fields of finance, banking, and across the sciences. Many pair their major with another emphasis, such as computer programming, and go into fields like game design or advanced programming.

    Famous figures with Mathematics majors include Art Garfunkel, Lewis Carroll, and Virginia Wade.
