A plumber might use math to measure and calculate the area of pipes or the amount of space needed for an installation. Plumbers also would need math to calculate the amount of fluid need to go through pipes at the desired temperatures, pressures, and sizes of pipes.

### When do you use math outside of school?

I'm a plumber. I use it to calculate pipe lengths and angles. It
is essential when sizing or designing heating systems. Ordering
materials for a job or estimating costs demands a firm basis in
math. There are many other ways it crops up daily. I imagine that
other trades and professions have similar needs.
