I could understand completely well why someone might pursue a career in a scientific field: biology, chemistry, physics, medicine, etc., but I’ve always wondered why anyone would choose a field like math. Throughout my life, like many others probably, math has just been a boring subject where you repeat formulaic steps over and over again. Even when I got to calculus, I found finding derivatives and integrals satisfying, but… not something I would want to do my whole life.
I understand that I probably glossed over the whole field of math just a bit too much, but that’s unfortunately the scope under which I view math in as it was taught to me in school.
So… how could you make me interested in math?
