Careers in Mathematics  
The "Careers in Mathematics" video contains interviews with
mathematicians working in industry, business and government. The
purpose of the project is to allow the viewer to hear from people
working outside academia what their daytoday work life is like and how
their background in mathematics contributes to their ability to do their
job. Interviews were conducted on site, showing the work environment and
some of the projects mathematicians contribute to as part of
multidisciplinary teams. People interviewed come from industrial based
firms such as Kodak and Boeing; business and financial firms such as
Price Waterhouse and D. E. Shaw & Co.; and government agencies such as
the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Naval Sea
System Command.
