What should you major in if you are good in math?
My son is 15, but can beat those chollege kids any day, in math that is! What should he major in, and what profession would be best for him?
Well I'd say there are many options:
He could major in math - and become a mathematician, middle school math teacher, high school math teacher, or college professor.
He could major in economics, accounting, physics, chemistry, engineering. All of those have a strong math component.
Seems like there are lots of choices here. You/he also needs to look at some of his other skills. Is he patient and good at explaining mathematical concepts to otehrs? If not he should probably rule out math teacher. Does he enjoy math enough that he wants to do it as a career? Or does he also have other interests?
Maths itself probably has the most diversity and decent job prospects as well, though on that front engineering is always a good bet, but ElleBee is right, it does just depend on what his other interests are.
