Whether we want to admit it or not, we’ve all had the thought while sitting in math class working through a tough problem. “When am I ever going to use this outside of math class?” It turns out, there are more jobs than you may think that require a strong background in math, especially in the booming field of technology. 

One of the most desirable positions in this field is within the video game design industry. Video games have provided endless entertainment to millions of kids for decades. It’s no surprise that when you ask many of these children what they want to do when they grow up, many of their answers include creating video games like the ones that have brought them so much joy. This field is quite prolific, too, with designers making upwards of six figures in some states.

There’s a reason video game designers get paid so well. While it may seem like it’s all fun and games, it actually takes a lot of talent, skill, and hard work to do the job. Having a mathematical background is a requirement, and one that often turns people away from the job. This is why it’s crucial to start developing mathematical skills at a young age. While others are turned away from these jobs, you can fearlessly run toward them with a unique skill set that you’ve been cultivating for years.
