In the age of big data, math is equally critical to career success. Business leaders know that the higher you rise in a company, the more your job will involve math as it relates to finance, data analysis, and accounting.
Mathematics teaches children more than equations and functions, however. It instills in them logic, critical thinking, and problem solving, all of which drive the business models of successful companies. If your child hopes to succeed in the jobs of tomorrow, they will require a strong foundation in mathematics.
4. Humanities/liberal Arts
Robots and artificial intelligence are already replacing hundreds of jobs every year, and the jobs that are most at risk are those that entail technical and repetitive tasks, such as accounting and data entry.
Professions that require high levels of creativity, people management, and critical thinking are more difficult to replace with artificial intelligence. If your child hopes to find a secure financial future, they must be able to think critically and creatively, and they will develop that ability through a liberal arts education. Humanities teaches students to think creatively, work with people, and have strong personal judgment, all of which are irreplaceable skills.
