At the end of class today, my Physics II professor asked us this simple question to answer over the weekend. The question: "So many people are interested in mathematics and physics, but why are there so few people getting degrees in these basic sciences?" I just wanted to hear what kind of answers y'all have for that question. I'm probably going to major in Physics since I enjoy it so much, so its kinda tough for me to answer that question. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
