Mathematicians today are engaged in a wide variety of activities, ranging from the creation of new mathematical theories (theoretical mathematics), to solving economic, scientific, engineering, and business problems using mathematical knowledge and computational tools (applied mathematics).
Other occupations that require a degree in, or extensive knowledge of, mathematics include actuary, statistician, computer programmer, systems analyst, systems engineer, and operations research analyst. In addition, a strong background in mathematics facilitates employment in fields such as engineering, economics, finance, and physics.
Employment of mathematicians is expected to increase more slowly than the average for all occupations through the year 2005. Bachelor's degree holders in mathematics who meet state certification requirements may become high school mathematics teachers.
The Gogebic Community Mathematics curriculum is designed to provide the general education courses that are required to transfer to a university for bachelor's degree completion.
