Math Structures the World around Us
From Google searches to sunflowers’ structures, we can look at and understand the world around us through the lens of math. Watch this video by Techsploration to know more about the critical skills you can develop by studying math.
Math can not only help us understand the structure of the world around us but also lead to many job opportunities, from epidemiology to finance and from business to teaching.
The cool thing about math is that it’s all around us. Whether you realize it or not, you are using math and encountering it every day and in almost everything you do.
This is a video from the Women in Action series produced by Canadian nonprofit Techsploration.

Techsploration’s Women In Action series delivers a quick overview of over forty careers in sciences, technology, trades, and engineering. The series features short clips of various female role models who share “the best thing” about their careers. The series introduces young women to careers in which females have been chronically underrepresented. The purpose is to inspire confidence in young women that they can explore and thrive in STEM careers.
