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.
