math in psychology    Reply with quote  

Hello, I'm doing a project for math class involving how math is used in my future career (psychology) and I wondered if anyone IN the career could tell me why (or why not, I guess...) you have needed a good education in math throughout your career. Anything you tell me helps, so thank you in advance for your advice!

In the UK when studying Psychology in particular, it`s vital a student demonstrates the use of statistical data collected from subjects to support their original hypothesis. A good understanding of Math(s) can really help.

Hope that does.

Erm, well there are various sub-sections of psycholgy like quantitative psychology which involves the application of mathematical and statistical modeling in psychological research, and the development of statistical methods for analyzing and explaining behavioral data. The term

Quantitative psychology is relatively new and little used (only recently have Ph.D. programs in quantitative psychology been formed), and it loosely covers the longer standing subfields psychometrics and mathematical psychology.
