What math do architects use
Contributed by: Allen6
Architects do not use complicated math concepts in building even though it looks that they have to do lots of calculation. To prepare for an architect, you typically need to have good background on Calculus, College Algebra, Geometry like Trigonometry, Finite math, Elementary Statistics and Analytical Geometry, etc. Some of them may be overlapped, but these are pretty much needed for a college student in architecture. For details, you better check the curriculum of the architectural program from an university that you know has architectural program that meets NAAB standards. Different universities may have different requirements for Math. To be an architect, the best way is to join a university to pursue a bachelor's degree in architecture and later on to pursue a master's degree. You can take exams to get a architect certification from a few organizations.
Check The curriculum of School of Architecture at Carnegie Mellon University for a sample list of courses for undergraduate students in architecture.
