From Ancient Greece to the modern day classroom, mathematics has shaped civilization. Differing from most other disciplines, math utilizes logic and problem solving. Whether through Algebra, Geometry or Calculus, math offers value to its users. In short, mathematics challenges students to realize their full potential and expand their understanding of the world.

After four year in college, I have been exposed to many different types of mathematics. The lessons and principles I have learned are enormous. Something as simple as order of operation helps us realize that timing matters; certain things should be done first, while others second. Functions remind us of relationships and how we can describe various relationships. We learn in calculus how to maximize or minimize these relationships (i.e. functions). Geometry gives us an idea of spatial arrangements. All these areas of study have practical applications, many of which I have been exposed to. This exposure has helped me gleam a deeper understanding of the world around me.

I plan on applying my math background in the financial marketplace. Today, the workforce is plush with complex problems where knowing higher levels of math is extremely useful. The financial marketplace is a perfect example. Whether in stocks, foreign exchange, futures, options or bonds, complex problems arise every day. What asset classes should I invest in? Where are interest rates going? How can I hedge my portfolio? Questions like these are asked continually. My analytical background will help me tackle these kinds of questions.

Math is a facilitator of creative synergies. Math has helped me collaborate and share my ideas, as well as learn from the ideas of others. Learning to work in a group and exchange ideas freely is invaluable. This not only makes me a better team player, but also equips me with skills necessary for leadership.

Through math I have gleamed a deeper understanding of the world around me, am better suited to tackle complex problems and have been equipped with skills necessary for collaboration and leadership. I have experienced first-hand the value of a degree in math. Ultimately, math has made me an all-around better individual.
