As a kid growing up, I was only told math could be applied into engineering, else it would be pure math for the purpose of teaching mathematics.
To help address this sort of problem, Coaching Actuaries put together an absolutely adorable actuary-themed alphabet book. It's so cute, I'd even recommend grown-ups to have a glance and am including it here for that reason. Full credits go to Coaching Actuaries!
For kids, see the read-aloud audiobook version on Youtube.
