## Math = Money

Rob sent in a great link to a CNN.money.com article about the most valuable college majors.

Reading down the list the underlying message is that industry needs math skills.

*“Math is at the crux of who gets paid,” said Ed Koc, director of research at NACE. “If you have those skills, you are an extremely valuable asset. We don’t generate enough people like that in this country.”*

That makes you feel good to be a math teacher. Another thing I noticed about the article is that math majors, in and of themselves, did not make the list. So while industry loves math, they want people that can apply it.
