## How Much Math Do You need?

When I went to college to study physics, I took years of calculus, differential equations and even mathematical modeling. The last class was supposed to help use this advanced math for real world situations.

I eventually graduated and did not go into physics. I went into writing and journalism and the bulk of the math I learned, I never use. The funny thing is that even the people I talk to on a regular basis who went into science and engineering hardly use the math they learned.
