For many more examples of math on the job, see "Why Study Math?" from the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) pages of the Math Forum's project Ask Dr. Math: http://mathforum.org/dr.math/faq/faq.why.math.html On this page follow the link to close to 40 firsthand accounts from Mathematicians at Work, career profiles telling what some college math majors are now doing, from an Air Traffic Control Systems Analyst and a Lawyer to a Data Capture Facility Troubleshooter on the Hubble space telescope. The authors of these essays describe a wide variety of careers for which a backgound in the mathematical sciences is useful. http://www.maa.org/careers/index.html - Sarah, for the Teacher2Teacher Service
