As a therapist, little math is required, although some basic statistics might be helpful to be able to understand the results of research articles and basic problem solving skills are helpful in any profession.

I wish to further my education in the field of medicine after high school. In medicine,Calculus is used to determine various things. We can determines how long it takes certain substances to metabolise in a body, or what percent of a persons body has medicine running through them. These are just a few examples but you can see that calculus is very important in medicine.

Calculus is not really used a lot in the navy. An exception to this is how calculus is used in science problems and the sailors in charge of the engine room, and Navy architects us calculus a lot in their ship designs. Other than that, the most I'll use calculus is the basic stuff.

I would like to be an engineer when I grow up. Some examples of using calculus include: rates of change with respect to time, or space of such variables as heat, wave, or gas, vibrations in solids such as bridges and buildings, and many others.

Calculus is used very often in all Engineering fields, but it is used particularly often in Mechanical Engineering. One of the biggest uses of calculus is within Finite Element Analysis, which is, in simple terms, a method for breaking up very large and complex equations into more managable bits.

Calculus can be used in my career in music education because as a band director I will have to do some math. I will have to manage the band's finances, which could include a system of equations.

I would like to become an engineer, one type of engineering I have looked into is metallurgical engineering. Calculus is used in this field to determine the stress on metals, so the amount of cycles or uses before a piece of equipment breaks can be known. It is also used to determine whether giving a piece of metal LSP will give it any benefits.

Mathematics is not used in my chosen field: Journalism. However, I think learning calculus will benefit me in life because I will have a wider variety of knowledge to connect with other people.

Calculus is often used in the medical field. For instance, with the technology of MRIs and other such machines calculus is used to interpret the data found and create the picture that the doctors read. Calculus also goes into radiation treatments for cancer.

In my future profession, calculus will help me learn how much of something will be needed and create those models they were talking about in the video to create new medications to treat diseases in the human body.

On a website that I looked up how math is used in bioengineering, it said that, "The National Institutes of Health defines bioengineering as "the application of the life sciences, mathematics and engineering principles to define and solve problems in biology, medicine, healthcare, and other fields." " Math is used in determining the percentage of drugs a person absorbs through different means, and it is used for many other processes as well. Currently, I am very late for physics, so this is all that I can write.

Math is used in architecture often. Math allows us to better understand geometry and shapes, which is a huge part of architecture. Plans have to be made for buildings and landscape. These plans have to be created using a mathematic approach. Also, math can be used in architecture to balance efficiency, costs, etc. during the creation of a building/structure.

After I graduate I hope to peruse a career in Pharmacy, a field in which math is very important. Pharmacokinetics, which is a mathematical way to figure out what a drug does in the body and how long it takes to react and its duration, is one area of math that is used is in Pharmacy. This topic uses the idea of slope, calculus, half-life, and a little bit of physics. When figuring this out, you must first take into consideration how long the drug has been in the body, the age and health of the patient, the dose, and how frequently it is distributed. Math is also used in Compounding Pharmacy when creating the percentages of chemicals and other ingredients in the drug. Once the dosage of the drug is known, then the Pharmacist can combine other substances to it to create the drug in the form of a sucker, a cream, a soft tablet, and numerous other ways.

Math is a fundamental skill upon which all attorneys should be well versed. When writing an argumentative brief, lawyers must create a kind of outline that is very similar to a geometric theorem or proof, in that all evidence must be made clear and precise for the judge and jury. I especially noticed this similarity when we wrote briefs in Ms. Hinkle’s class my sophomore year. The writing style that we utilized was very clear-cut and fact-based, just like a theorem. In addition to writing, lawyers (especially those involved in civil court cases) must use math to calculate for how much money how a client should sue. Finally, a lawyer’s argument is always based on logic and deductive or inductive reasoning. In math, students regularly work their way out of difficult problems using their previous knowledge of math and years of study to help determine the correct answers. Simply being used to solving difficult equations and working one’s way out of problems is an excellent way to hone one’s logical thinking skills. While Calculus may not be regularly used in murder trials, the mathematical concepts of logical thinking, proving theorems, and calculating damages are powerful weapons in any lawyer’s argumentative arsenal.

There are many ways calculus relates to medicine. One way calculus could be used in the medical field is to find how much medication remains in a patient over time. Also, it could be used to determine the rate of change of surface area of a growing child, which would help a doctor determine the dosage a young patient would require. Lastly, it could be used to determine the size of a tumor by using the rate of change of the volume and radius.

Calculus is heavily used in the medical field. I hope to become an anesthesiologist, and in this profession you use calculus everyday. When you are calculating dosage rates for the patients anesthesia. You take into account their body mass index, tolerance to the drug, age, renal failure, and many other factors. In certain circumstance an anesthesiologist may also use formulas to calculate pressures, voltages, resistances across the human vascular circuit. Calculus isn't used on a daily basis, but math in general is a must. Many doctors even carry around a pocket calculator.

I would like to become a pharmacist. I've looked up how calculus relates to pharmacy and all the "answers" say that it simply seperates a pharmacist from a pharmacist tech. Pharmacy uses kinetics and kinetics has calculus in it. Mathematics is really used in pharmacy because I will have to do a lot of measuring and use proportions. It is necassary to have a great math background when becoming a pharmacist because if a pharmacist can't do math, then they may give the wrong amount or type of medicine to someone.
