**Introduction to the field:**

A you become a mathematician, you will work in applied mathematics, or theoretical mathematics. Sometimes, theoretical mathematics are called pure mathematics.

Gauss, Einstein, and Cauchy were great mathematicians. Gauss is probably the largest ever.

There is something in common with them. They are all conducting extensively.

Those seeking to work in applied mathematics to learn more about what math has to say, or how mathematics can be applied in almost all areas of life, as the economy, social sciences, engineering, biology, and many others.

This means that they must find mathematical models that can be used to solve the problems of the real world.

In pure mathematics would like just to learn more. They are those who will come with theorems, definitions and new axioms.

Then, they dedicate their lives to prove these theorems. Throughout history that they gave us many great achievements which have affected deep in engineering, science and the many other discipline.

**The challenge:**

Needless to say that one must be very good in math to become a mathematician.

Above all, the passion and love for mathematics are a must. I know that some people who are good at mathematics, and yet they certainly do not want to do every day.

Mathematicians everyday math and that they are supposed to come up with solid evidence of theorems and mathematical models of real-world problems, and it can be rewarding when you discovered something.

However, it can be very frustrating when it seeks, but found no solution.

For example, nobody has proven the conjecture of first twin yet (there are an infinite number of twin prime numbers) it has been proven although there are an infinite number of prime numbers.

**Get the job:**

Many jobs require qualifications, such as a master or PhD. Some jobs require only a Bachelor’s degree.

For example, to work for the Government, you must have a degree of four years with a major math to get an entry level position.

The recommended classes are calculus, linear and abstract algebra and differential equations.

If you also know the numerical analysis, topology and probability and statistics, it is a plus.

Entry-level positions are also available in the private sector. You will not be called, but with the title; You will be called a programmer, Analyst systems, systems engineer or researcher.

Most jobs are found in industries such as Government, education, manufacturing and the private sector.

Most jobs are found in the area of the Government.
