Interested in teaching high-school level Mathematics.

What classes should I focus on and take in college? What colleges are best to become a math teacher? Is there any specific information I know before starting this college profession? How will a master's/bachelor's degree help me once I am out of college and should I focus on getting my master's/bachelor's? What lifestyle should I focus on to have a successful teaching career?

I want to teach math, but I have knee problems that need a consistent stream of money to stay okay. Advice?

I am good at math. I get As in AP math classes and tutor and do competition math for fun. But honestly, my biggest joy in math is my tutoring. I love to teach. Nothing fires me up like a kid that hates math because a bad math teacher failed them and convinced them they're awful at it. I hate that so many math teachers never take the time before they go into teaching to learn how to NOT understand, since so many math teachers were geniuses that always got it, and then they don't know how to explain something to someone that doesn't immediately get it. My biggest strengths as a tutor come from places I haven't understood, that I've had to work for hours on my own to finally get. So, I want to be a math teacher! But I also have knee problems which will only get worse throughout my life. So I'm going to have to pay for surgeries and appointments and treatments and braces and lots of things that are really expensive. I don't want a life of luxury, but I know I'll have all these extra expenses and I don't think a high school teaching salary will cover that. My current plan is to get a good math job for a while, save up some money and get some experience, and then get my teaching certification and go into teaching. Is that realistic? My parents both did the "high school to college to more college to working in the field to college professor," but can I do that and teach high school? And can I make enough money to support myself somehow in this? #mathematics-education #math #mathematics #money-management

About architure

Well is it true that the math and other units of architecture is really hard??? What type of math there is? Will there be a lot of making model structure? Will there be a lot of reports? I really wanted to take up architecture but the math scares me ,makes me think to just change career choice. Any suggestions that has math and art in it? #mathematics #architecture #mathematics-education #artists #architectural-design #interior-architecture #teachers #arti

Should every student take an advanced math course in college no matter what major or minor? How important is math when one is studying science?

I love everything about science, but math oftentimes translates as a foreign language. I find myself eager to be outside doing labs and sampling but dreading sitting at a desk punching in numbers on a calculator. Although I don't like math, I know it's a crucial part of education. I would like to know how important it is in relation to other areas of study! #science #mathematics #mathematics-education

What jobs, besides teaching, can Math majors get?

I love mathematics, but the high school teaching salary has me wary of that job. Are there other jobs, besides accountants, that math majors are qualified for? #mathematics #math #mathematics-education #financial-planning

Should I spend less time and money in college but graduate with a less desirable degree for my intended career?

Hi! My name's Keegan and I'm currently an undergraduate student in the honors program at Tulane University. After seeing and realizing the financial burden of my first semester here on both my family and my future self, I started thinking about changing my previous plan of a 3+2 year dual degree physics and engineering program at Tulane and then Vanderbilt or Johns Hopkins to simply triple majoring in 4 years here in mathematics, physics, and economics. Upon paring down even further, I figured out that I can graduate in 3 doing a double major in mathematics and physics, or in 2 with a mathematics major + physics minor. My cost of college would potentially halve, and I would be able to pursue a graduate degree on a shorter timescale. However, what I want to do as a career is automotive engineering, and I'm not sure what path I would be able to take from an undergraduate degree in mathematics to get to that point. Is it a better idea to spend less money and accrue less debt but have a less desirable degree for my intended career, or is it better to stick it out for a longer period of time and graduate with a more diverse range of degrees? #mechanical-engineering #graduate-school #mathematics #physics #automotive #graduate-recruitment #mathematics-education

What are some good teaching strategies for Secondary/High School students?

I am studying to be a math teacher, primarily for secondary school/High school, and want to know what some people have done to help teach difficult children and/or tips to make teaching easier. I am hoping to teach in China, but tips used in the States would be welcome as well. #teacher #education #mathematics-education #secondary-education #teaching
