## Mathematician Duties and Responsibilities

Mathematicians spend their time analyzing data and solving mathematical problems to assist teams in other industries. A mathematician's duties typically involve:

**Performing Calculations** Day to day, the majority of a mathematician's job is performing calculations relevant to their current project. This typically involves working with people in other fields, such as chemists or industrial designers, to test techniques.

**Applying Theories to Experiments** Mathematicians apply theories to a range of practical problems in fields such as business, science, or engineering. From these theories, mathematicians can then develop new concepts and rules by combining this knowledge with their own theories.

**Conducting Mathematical Research** This role involves conducting research to build on the knowledge already developed in areas such as algebra, logic, or geometry. This might include reading professional journals, networking with other people in the field, and attending conferences to learn about the latest trends.

**Designing Math Methods** Mathematicians design and develop new methods to solve issues in science, engineering, or other related industries. This might include performing experiments to find the ideal results of their theory.

**Performing Analysis** Mathematicians perform numerical analysis of data and use their findings to resolve scientific or engineering issues. This involves drawing conclusions from data and looking for patterns to prove or disprove theories, then reporting on them.

## Mathematician Skills and Qualifications

Mathematicians should have a head for numbers and be able to analyze data to solve problems and develop techniques. This role typically requires a master's degree or higher in mathematics or statistics, as well as the following abilities:**Analytical skills**- mathematicians use analytical models to examine data. They need to be able to choose the right software for the task and understand computer programming languages to develop new models**Numerical aptitude**- this role requires an excellent knowledge of statistics, algebra, and calculus in order to solve and develop mathematical problems and techniques**Problem-solving abilities**- a large proportion of a mathematician's job is to solve equations and math issues. This requires the ability to troubleshoot and come up with solutions to various problems**Communication skills**- to be successful in this role, mathematicians need to convey complex information and theories to people of varying levels of understanding, which requires strong communication skills**Critical thinking**- mathematicians need strong critical thinking abilities in order to solve complex problems and find solutions to math issues**Attention to detail**- mathematics is very detail-oriented and requires precision and accuracy. Mathematicians should have keen attention to detail in order to spot errors or patterns in theories and equations

## Mathematician Education and Training

Mathematicians are typically required to have at least two to four years' experience along with at least a bachelor's degree in mathematics, statistics, or a related subject. However, more commonly, companies expect applicants to have a master's degree or higher, as well as some computer programming experience as mathematicians often work with data analysis software.## Mathematician Salary and Outlook

The median annual salary for mathematicians is nearly $106,000. The lowest 10 percent earn less than $54,000, while the highest 10 percent earn more than $160,000 annually. A quarter of professionals in this sector don't receive benefits, but a large majority receive medical and dental coverage. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts this sector to grow by 33 percent through 2026, which is much faster than average for all occupations.## Mathematician Helpful Resources
