• Hate math? Don't worry, you can still make bank.
• There are plenty of high-paying jobs you can pursue that don't require a head for numbers.
• Judges, acupuncturists, and elevator repairers are just a few occupations that the math-averse can take up.
Did you dread math class as a kid? If so, that feeling probably didn't go away, and you're likely not too keen on the idea of doing math as a career.
Luckily, there are plenty of high-paying jobs for those who can't stand the thought of crunching numbers and sifting through data all day.
We combed through the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), a US Department of Labor database that compiles detailed information on hundreds of occupations, to find positions with a median annual salary of over $70,000 that don't require heavy math skills.
O*NET ranks how important "using mathematics to solve problems" is in any job, assigning each a "math importance level" between 1 and 100. Math-centric positions, such as mathematicians and statisticians, rank between 90 and 100 on the spectrum, while jobs such as massage therapists and actors are under 10.
Here are the highest-paying positions with a math importance level of 31 or less:
