    Siapa mau jadi Matematikawan?

    Post by fikrisgon on Mon Mar 01, 2010 10:07 pm

    Banyak orang yang ngomong : "Ngapain masuk FMIPA?" "Mau jadi guru?" "Jadi guru bimbel?"
    Eits jangan salah, lulusan Matematika murni sekarang sedang sangat diperlukan dimana-mana.

    Bahkan Mathematician adalah pekerjaan NOMOR 1 di Amerika pada tahun 2008 lalu.
    Pada tahun 2009 apa??? Aktuaria!
    Kalau mau jadi Aktuarian setau saya bisa S2 di FMIPA ITB

    Makanya bagi siswa kelas 3 SMA yg suka Matematika atau bingung mau kuliah yg bagus dimana, gausah ragu masuk matematika..
    Prospek cerah dan gue yakin deh bbrp tahun lagi bakal rebutan kursi di fakultas matematika.

    Berikut beberapa artikel:

    ITB FAIR 2010: Make Your Best Career with Mathematics


    http://www.itb.ac.id/en/news/2728.xhtml

    BANDUNG, itb.ac.id- Mathematics is a unique and fascinating thing to talk about, as it truly is close to our lives. This was brought up by an ITB mathematic lecturer, also as an expert staff of research quality guarantee and community service, Prof. Dr. Edy Soewono. He talked about mathematics in the Mathematics Seminar: Best career in the future and mathematics role inside, Saturday (06/02/10), in the West Hall of ITB.

    Quite a number of people see mathematics as terrifying, hard to understand, and not lucrative. This paradigm makes young generations afraid to study mathematics, while in the last ten years job market for mathematics graduate are very wide. This is expressed by Ika Magdalena, Mathematics 2006, as the seminar coordinator when she was asked about the background of the seminar.

    In the seminar, Prof. Dr. Edy Soewono responded on society perceiving mathematics as a hard thing. He believes that this depends on how teachers motivate their students. Although mathematics is not easy, teachers can motivate through mathematical models with an environmental approach. "Mathematics turn interesting when we link mathematics with daily problems by making the mathematical models for them," said Edy encouragingly.

    Preventive and curative actions on Dengue Fever were taken as an example. He explained that with mathematics we can have an early warning system for dengue fever by making a mathematical model for it. Through the model we can find out whether an area is categorized as an endemic area, warning area, or safe area for dengue fever. The method is by taking samples from a population with the daily estimation of one patient to ten patients in a ten thousand people population. Based on the approximation, we make the algorithm required and make a program to watch for dengue fever in an area.

    Prospect of an Actuary in Indonesia

    Other that computational mathematics, the prospect of a mathematic expert is also in the area of finance and actuary. The mathematic seminar also presented a famous actuary, Budi Tampubolon. Budi explained, "Actuary is a profession which estimates the possibility of a future action and analyzes the financial impact should the action happen."

    An actuary generally works in an insurance company. However, various companies are, at the moment, in need of actuarial services in their risk management, both in production and investment, while now Indonesia has a minimum number of actuaries. According to the data from Persatuan Aktuaris Indonesia (Indonesia Actuary Union), the number of actuaries in Indonesia in January 2010 is a mere 318 people. "The prospect of being an actuary is wide open. Not to mention the average salary of an actuary is 100 million rupiah per month," said Budi Tampubolon, responded with the audiences' amazed expressions.

    All Indonesian actuaries are united in Persatuan Aktuaris Indonesia. And to be an actuary, several areas need to be mastered, which are Financial Mathematics, Probability Theories and Statistical Mathematics, Economy, Accounting, Statistical Methods, Actuarial Mathematics, Risk Theories, Professionalism Education, Expertise (Life Insurance, General Insurance, or Pension Fund), Actuarial Management, Investment Management.

    Besides of the very wide prospect it has, the profession of an actuary is one that can never be replaced by a robot, because of the vast aspects need to be analyzed in order to find the solution of the problem an actuary has to solve.

    Not Only In the World of Mathematics

    In the seminar, Irma Savitri Widyasari, a mathematical practitioner working in a famous oil company, was also present. Irma talked on how mathematics train us to think in a well-organized an well-ordered manner. Wherever the job would be, a mathematic graduate already has this capability, which enables him to easily adapt with whatever profession he's going to do.

    When she was asked about what is the best job, Irma answered, "The best job depends on whether or not the person enjoys doing it. There are no limitations on what is a good or bad job."

    Doing the Math to Find the Good Jobs
    Mathematicians Land Top Spot in New Ranking of Best and Worst Occupations in the U.S.


    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123119236117055127.html

    Nineteen years ago, Jennifer Courter set out on a career path that has since provided her with a steady stream of lucrative, low-stress jobs. Now, her occupation -- mathematician -- has landed at the top spot on a new study ranking the best and worst jobs in the U.S.

    "It's a lot more than just some boring subject that everybody has to take in school," says Ms. Courter, a research mathematician at mental images Inc., a maker of 3D-visualization software in San Francisco. "It's the science of problem-solving."

    The study, released Tuesday from CareerCast.com, a new job site, evaluates 200 professions to determine the best and worst according to five criteria inherent to every job: environment, income, employment outlook, physical demands and stress. (CareerCast.com is published by Adicio Inc., in which Wall Street Journal owner News Corp. holds a minority stake.)

    The findings were compiled by Les Krantz, author of "Jobs Rated Almanac," and are based on data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Census Bureau, as well as studies from trade associations and Mr. Krantz's own expertise.

    According to the study, mathematicians fared best in part because they typically work in favorable conditions -- indoors and in places free of toxic fumes or noise -- unlike those toward the bottom of the list like sewage-plant operator, painter and bricklayer. They also aren't expected to do any heavy lifting, crawling or crouching -- attributes associated with occupations such as firefighter, auto mechanic and plumber.

    The study also considers pay, which was determined by measuring each job's median income and growth potential. Mathematicians' annual income was pegged at $94,160, but Ms. Courter, 38, says her salary exceeds that amount.
    The Best and Worst Jobs

    Her job entails working as part of a virtual team that designs mathematically based computer programs, some of which have been used to make films such as "The Matrix" and "Speed Racer." She telecommutes from her home and rarely works overtime or feels stressed out. "Problem-solving involves a lot of thinking," says Ms. Courter. "I find that calming."

    Other jobs at the top of the study's list include actuary, statistician, biologist, software engineer and computer-systems analyst, historian and sociologist.

    Mark Nord is a sociologist working for the Department of Agriculture's Economic Research Service in Washington, D.C. He studies hunger in American households and writes research reports about his findings. "The best part of the job is the sense that I'm making some contribution to good policy making," he says. "The kind of stuff that I crank out gets picked up by advocacy organizations, media and policy officials."

    The study estimates sociologists earn $63,195, though Mr. Nord, 62, says his income is about double that amount. He says he isn't surprised by the findings because his job generates little stress and he works a steady 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. schedule. "It's all done at the computer at my desk," he says. "The main occupational hazard is carpal tunnel syndrome."

    On the opposite end of the career spectrum are lumberjacks. The study shows these workers, also known as timber cutters and loggers, as having the worst occupation, because of the dangerous nature of their work, a poor employment outlook and low annual pay -- just $32,124.

    New protective gear -- such as trouser covers made of fiber-reinforcement materials -- and an increased emphasis on safety have helped to reduce injuries among lumberjacks, says Paul Branch, who manages the timber department at Pike Lumber Co. in Akron, Ind. Still, accidents do occur from time to time, and some even result in death. "It's not a job everybody can do," says Mr. Branch.

    But Eric Nellans, who has been cutting timber for the past 11 years for Pike Lumber, is passionate about his profession. "It's a very rewarding job, especially at the end of the day when you see the work you accomplished," he says. Mr. Nellans, 35, didn't become discouraged even after he accidentally knocked down a dead tree and broke his right leg in the process four years ago. "I was back in the woods cutting timber in five weeks," he says.

    Other jobs at the bottom of the study: dairy farmer, taxi driver, seaman, emergency medical technician and roofer.

    Mike Riegel, a 43-year-old roofer in Flemington, N.J., says he likes working "outside in the fresh air." Since he runs his own business, which he inherited from his father, he can start and end his day early in hot weather or do the opposite when it's cold.

    The study estimates roofers earn annual incomes of $34,164, which Mr. Riegel says is consistent with what he pays new employees. Roofers also ranked poorly because of their hazardous working conditions. "You obviously can't be afraid of heights," says Mr. Riegel, who once fell two stories while working on a rooftop in the rain but luckily landed safely on a pile of soft dirt. "I missed some cement by 10 feet."

    bener juga sih masuk akal kok, karena di FMIPA itu kerangka berpikir logis semakin diperkuat. ibaratnya kita di FMIPA bikin "template thinking", nah template itu kalo kita mau masukin ke pekerjaan apapun bakalan berguna. tp ga cuma matematika kok, fisika setau gue juga oke..

    nice info jang Rock
