Most careers today require a solid background in math. Employers want workers with varying degrees of math ability for the fields of:
- Business (accountants, cashiers, real estate agents)
- Medicine and science (pharmacists, physicians, engineers)
- Technology (architects, auto service technicians, programmers)
- Human services (psychologists, educators, EMTs)
The Bureau of Labor Statistics often provides detailed information on how much math is needed for various careers.
