If you're like me, and you're taking a math class that employs the use of numerical integration using something like the Euler method, you've probably wondered, "when am I ever going to use this again?" I remember specifically telling my calculus teacher I would never need to know this kind of tedious math work.    When I got to college, I started research in the field of cardiac electrophysiology. I would soon employ all those weird numerical integration schemes I never thought I would use again. The difference was, this time I was using these complicated math tools to recreate the electrical activity in the heart to predict arrhythmias! It was an eye-opening experience and made me really appreciate some of the math I had thought was boring and laborious.    Once you see the uses for math, it makes you really appreciate them and go to a new level of understanding. Never in my life did I imagine I would be able to create a model of the... read more
