Math Nerds?
 
So I'm taking a graduate Mathematical Logic course in preparation for my masters in Economics.

I thought it would be cool, and probably helpful to kinda get a Mane "math club" type thing (ie posting in this thread), if anyone is up for it.

I know there are some engineers, chemists and finance, math, and econ majors on here... maybe it's a dumb idea, but let's see where it goes.

The Khan academy thing on Euler's proof is pretty cool:

!Booya!

You should explain the 'physics' of your avatar, lol.

Mogulseeker 03-24-2013 06:16 PM

I'd say it's a good example of displacement.

By Math club do you mean, help me do my homework club? :). I kid

No... that's the other Math thread I started last year, lol.

It is what I like to think of as a solid example of conservation of momentum, John Lynch has a lot of momentum before he nearly decapitated Clark and he gave a bunch of that momentum to Clark's head.

I have a B.S. in Math, no pun intended but if you take it that way, that's fine, too. Working on my Doctorate right now but it's in administration instead of math.

So practical, though. I probably would have been better of with a math major (rather than an econ major) for a masters in econ. A math major would have better prepared me for an MA in Economics than a BA in economics, and I'm not kidding.

I know some friend who are following precisely that path. They want to study econ, so they're math majors in undergrad, with the intention to go on to grad for economics.

One of my brothers earned a B.S. in Math with an Econ minor. He has three masters' degrees now and is working on a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering ... he's crazy.

It's a substitute for sex. When I'm finally getting consistant action, I'll put down the books... for now, it's PhD time.

This isn't a Chiefs board.

Do we have to show our work?

Why are there so many jokes about economists? That it's a half-baked thing, all guesswork, stuff like that. I loved math right up through algebra and geometry. Then came stupid trigonometry ... I gave up too quick.

Crushaholic 03-25-2013 07:43 AM

I can add, subtract, mutiply, and divide (oftentimes, without the use of a calculator). I tried to get more advanced than that, and I was confused...Ha!

Three different people (an economist, a chemist, and a lawyer) were asked the same question: what is 2+2?

The economist said: 4.


The chemist said: 4.0


The lawyer said: what do you want it to be?

Mogulseeker 03-25-2013 12:23 PM

Three people - an engineer, a chemist and an economist - are stranded on a desert island. Help is on the way, but they have to make due with one can of beans they recovered from the wreckage.

The engineer goes off to try and find some twigs or a rock to try and pry the can open.

The chemist replies, "I have a better idea - lets just soak a corner of the can in the salt water to erode a hole in it."

The economist replies, "I have a better idea... holding everything constant, we have a can opener..."

I ask my little cousin with down syndrome math questions like that, and she gives similar answers.

"What's 2+2?"
"22"

Math...

I hates it, precious. Hates it.
