Title: We Use Math
Url: http://weusemath.org
Publisher: We Use Math
Description: Perhaps readers have heard someone struggling with a math problem and grumbling, "When will I ever use this?" Perhaps, readers have said this themselves. We Use Math provides an answer (several answers, in fact). The site is a resource for mathematics educators and learners, and the content focuses on highlighting "careers in math" and "careers using math." A quick browse of either section makes it clear that math is foundational in a wide range of jobs. While some may be obvious (e.g., software engineers and data scientists), others may surprise readers. For example, those interested in a career that combines STEM subjects with various mediums can learn about math's role in animation, architecture, and urban planning. In addition to the career information, readers can stock up on relevant fun facts in the Math Tidbits section or explore additional content in the Blog section (including more great connections between math and multimedia, such as a link to a fascinating photo essay on the art within mathematics chalkboards). Educators will also want to check out the Resources for Teachers tab, which includes curriculum ideas, activities, classroom decor, and more. We Use Math is sponsored by Brigham Young University's Mathematics Department.
