Any career in any scientific or engineering fields will require both basic and advanced math. Without math to determine principles, calculate dimensions and limits, explore variations, prove concepts, etc. there would be no cell phones, TVs, stereos, video games, microwave ovens, computers, or virtually anything electronic. There would be no bridges, tunnels, roads, skyscrapers, automobiles, ships, planes, rockets or most things mechanical. There would be no metals beyond the common, like iron and copper, no plastics, no synthetics. In short, we'd most likely still be cave-dwellers without the use of math throughout the centuries and into the future. - email@example.com (Rich Fro)
