This week’s deep look into STEM professions brings us to maths, a numerical nightmare for all of us non-believers and the key differentiator between English and US English (maths vs math).

Mathemeticians are life’s equation masters, totting everything up into letters, numbers and even smaller numbers just above regular numbers.

Moving away from us regular ‘counters’ in the early days of school, truth maths fans spread their wings into areas as diverse as bridge building, broad analysis and finance.

What they do: Applied mathematicians can help in anything from chemistry and physics to engineering and actuarial work.

What they don’t do: Struggle in the numbers round on Countdown.

Educational requirements: Depending on where you end up, you at the very least need further education in mathematics. From that there may be subsequent need to learn specific fields, be they business or scientific.

Required skills: An incredibly keen, analytical and logical mind.

Here are some bits of humour found around the web that maths fans should get a kick out of, and a couple for the likes of me, too.

Unafraid of heights or spiders, Gordon spends most of his time avoiding conversations about music, appreciating even the least creative pun and rueing the day he panicked when meeting Paul McGrath. His favourite thing on the internet remains the ‘Random Article’ link on Wikipedia.
