Hi everyone! Thank you clicking on this thread. I am a community college student seeking to transfer by the end of this upcoming spring semester. I plan to major in math; my main goal is to become a high school teacher or community college professor. Only recently did I find out that there's a pure math track and applied math track. I already have a good idea of the difference between the two. My problem is, it seems I would enjoy applied math. Once I discovered how math can describe or be applied in the real world, it became a beautiful subject to me. Because I want to be a full-time teacher, I figured it'd also be neat to share applications with students so they also can learn to appreciate mathematics (because we all know many students fail to see why we need to learn math beyond the algebra level). Even so, I do realize the importance of some pure math courses and the need to understand and be able to do proofs. My aim is to truly be skilled at math in order to be a good teacher, but also gain knowledge as to how it is applied in the real world because that is how I've fallen in love with it. What do I do? I've heard I can major in both. What are your opinions? On a side note, do any of you know any liberal arts colleges (women's preferrably) that have strong math programs? Thank you all so much.
