How common are pure mathematics students in your country?

I'm from the Philippines, where it's almost a miracle to meet a pure math student. I have this inside joke with my pure math friends at uni that we are a "dying breed." In my country, most math majors are either studying Applied Math or Math Education (the latter being education degrees with a specialization in math). Furthermore, the number of universities in my country that actually offer an undergraduate pure math program can be counted on one's fingers, and pure math is mostly offered in top universities; it can already be considered an achievement to actually get into a university that offers pure math in the Philippines.

I'm wondering if pure math undergrads in your country are common.

Why Pure Mathematics is so appealing

Hey guys, I'm a rising junior who is looking to go into Pure Physics. One field that has always appealed to me however is Pure Mathematics. I think for me its just the level of rigor that's needed is so satisfying and how when talking to others who are equally or more well-versed in the subject you can talk to them in what seems to be some foreign language but you both still understand each other. Also the difficulty itself, its so hard to grasp some of the really abstract concepts such as Higher Dimensions and Group Theory that it kind of scares me, and that in some sense makes me even more interested to try and gain a solid understanding and appreciation of these types of concepts. Why do you guys like Pure Mathematics?

Justification for Pure Mathematics

I have seen questions like "What is the purpose of pure mathematics?" but most of the answers to these questions provide justification for pure mathematics by pointing out that pure mathematics will eventually be applied to problems in other fields. While the justification may sound good, it does not satisfy me to know that my work will have no tangible outcome during my lifetime. To tell you the truth I'm okay with my work not having any applications. Other answers compare mathematics to art. But art is different from mathematics in the sense that everybody can appreciate an artist's work but to appreciate the beauty of a mathematician's work you need to learn higher mathematics. These types of answers make mathematics seem like a cult of artists whose art can only be appreciated by joining the cult. I don't want to know what justification mathematicians give to 'society' for their work because then, most of the answers will again provide justification by pointing to the applications of mathematics. I want to know what justification mathematicians give to themselves for the work they do. How do you convince yourself that your work is worthwhile?

Pure mathematics researches seem to be partially like generalizing results, theorems,... without purposes.

I always wonder how the mathematicians researching the abstract/pure maths have their purposes so that they can know what they need to do and continue their works. Are the jobs for them only in academia? Are they well-paid?

"Researching pure mathematics seem to be partially like generalizing results, theorems,... without purposes." Could you tell me your opinion about that?

SOP review for master's in pure mathematics

I will be using the SOP as a template for a few master's programs (Canadian) and some Ph.D programs (American), all in pure mathematics (geometry and representation theory). Note that some details including job history will be in a separate CV.

I will DM the statement on request. Any constructive criticism is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Advice needed: Actuarial science vs mathematics/pure maths.

How restricted are you with an actuarial science degree, as to me options are really important. I would like to know that I can get the same jobs with the actuarial degree as the maths degree with the same amount of effort. I know going from a maths degree to an actuary is a pain because you don't get exemptions from some exams, but what about the other way, actuarial science degree into a maths based job. I'm still not completely sure if I want to be an actuary(but that salary is really tempting) so I really want options for later in life. Thanks so much for help or advice.

How did you decide pure vs applied mathematics?

I'm currently halfway through my MSc. Statistics programme and really enjoying reading about topology, banach space and number theory in my spare time. I'm originally a BA in English back in 2010, but as most of my recent jobs were data related (due to a lack of jobs in the publishing industry) and I strangely fell in love with data analytics and mathematics. It started with excel templates, then wanting to figure out how to do shortcuts to save time and the company money and the beauty of mathematics became evident to me.

As I'm 35 years old and working whilst doing my MSc., I'm torn between pure vs applied and wonder if I could go back in a decade or do and do a PhD in pure maths if I prefer to go that route? I'm wondering how pegged I'd be in statistics, if I go this route and my later work would entail statistics. As the world of mathematics is so broad, I tend to feel overwhelmed at the opinions and wondered if this was just me.

Has anybody else had this issue? How did you eventually decide pure vs applied mathematics?

Careers in CS with pure mathematics degree?

To give a little background on myself, I recently got a job as a web developer (full stack JavaScript), and I've been doing pretty well in the job I'm currently in. The issue that I'm having is, I'm about three months into doing web development professionally and while I really enjoy my job and feel extremely fortunate to be where I'm at, I just can't see myself doing web development for the rest of my life and want to have other options in CS that I can pivot into later down the road. I've considered going back to school and getting a CS degree, but that would take me a solid two years to get while pursuing my math degree would take far less time since that was my major when I had left college (I haven't gotten my degree yet, part of me regrets doing pure math instead of CS).

I'm wondering what career opportunities having a math degree and industry web development experience would give me? I know it may be a bit overhyped, but I'd like to transition into getting into AI. I'm wondering if anyone has recommendations as to what additional studying I should do if I want to pursue that path? I'm also wondering about additional career fields, not necessarily super math heavy, where having a math degree will give me an edge in terms of getting interviews and what additional self-study would be required as well. Thanks!

Looking for pure mathematics books, have an engineering background

Hello everyone. Lately I've come to realize that I am really interested in pure mathematics and proofs, and I'd love to delve into that in my free time. I am familiar with calculus and diffeq, but all of that is applied stuff, and I'm more interested in the theoretical aspect and the construction of proofs.

Perhaps soemthing that will help me get into computation later, if that's even possible.

Something of a gentle introduction would be great because I'm a little rusty (haven't had to think hard about anything in quite some time).

[A-Level | Pure Mathematics] How should I work out this question?

Hi there I am trying to work out the following question and would require some help with it...

>Show the equation tan(30^(0) + θ) = 2tan(60^(0) - θ) can be written in the form tan^(2) θ + (6 √ 3) tanθ -5 =0

Here is my working out for this part, I assume that it is correct but if you could check then that would be excellent.

>Hence, or otherwise solve the equation: tan(30^(0) + ΞΈ) = 2tan(60^(0) - ΞΈ), for 0^(o) < ΞΈ < 180^(o)

How do I go about solving this part, if you could explain it to me then that would help me greatly!

Methodology for Pure Mathematics

I'm sorry if this is a dumb question. Is it okay to not put a research methodology on a research paper about pure mathematics? I just have two teachers who have different opinions about it and I don't see any information on the internet that talks about that stuff or I just don't know where to go read about that. I just want a source to back-up with either one of those arguments.

Applying with No Background, BS in Pure Mathematics

Hi, everybody. I really don't know if anyone in a similar situation has posted here before, but any current advice/input would be really appreciated. I am a senior at a large SEC school and I am going to be graduating in the spring with a BS in pure mathematics. My plan up until this point was to go to graduate school to obtain a degree in mechanical engineering (still going to apply).

I have loved SLP since my freshman year of college, but was really discouraged from pursuing it by my dad. Unfortunately, I listened to him and I worry I am heading down the wrong career path. Honestly, I just got the idea today to apply to SLP programs without telling him. My problem is I obviously have no experience and I know how competitive this field is.

I have a solid GRE score (164 verbal, 163 quant) and a 3.89 GPA. I have participated heavily in undergraduate mechanical engineering research, and I volunteer frequently with the Ronald McDonald House Charity. Plus, some other extracurriculars beyond that.

Does anyone have experience applying to programs with absolutely no background? Do I even have a chance at being considered? My dream school is Vanderbilt, but I really don't know where to start with this process and I don't know who else to ask since I'm currently keeping my application a secret. If you've read this far, thank you! I'd love any feedback or help :-)

[A-Level | Pure Mathematics] Whats the best way of working out this question?

Hi there, I am interested in what method you would use to work out the following question. I am currently stuck on it and would love to see alternative methods to gain the correct solution!

>Express 8cos(theta) + 15sin(theta) in the form Rcos(theta-a) where R>0 and 0<a<90 degrees.
>
>Give the value of "a" correct to 2 d.p.
>
>Hence solve the equation 8cos(theta) + 15sin(theta)=12 give all solutions in the interval 0<theta<360 degrees.

My approach was to use trig identities to complete the first part and then for the second part, use the answer from the first part and set it equal to 12 before rearranging to work out theta.

Not too sure if this is the correct way of going about things, if you could show me how to work this out then that would be great! Still working on the question in the meantime!

Thanks!
