More about Careers with Maths magazine:
Mathematicians make it possible to send secure emails and buy things online, and they are essential to analyse data. Mathematical research and education are at the heart of some careers, while other careers utilise mathematics or statistics and their applications to build and enhance important work in areas like business, finance, manufacturing, customer service, science & health, computer science, engineering, and communications. Careers with Maths focuses on Maths + X, where ‘X’ is your passion, another field or a world issue. It takes maths beyond the classroom and into the careers of the future, which may rapidly shift from the increased pace of digital disruption. Careers with Maths provides inspiration, ideas and information about STEM career pathways.
