Math Careers in math

  1. Feb 3, 2005 #1
    I really enjoy math at school and am pretty good at it, and am thinking (if I survive my next few math courses) of going into math in university, but I don't really know what careers are available in math - what would some practical applications be (other than, er, accountants or something evil-sounding like that)? I'm also considering doing a double major in computer science and math (or some combination of one of those and physics) - would that be more practical?

    Applied mathematicians do all sorts of physics and mathematical modeling. Fun stuff.
