Math Geek

I have already admitted that I am somewhat of a nerd. Today, I am confessing my love of math. I was in class today working some stats problems and I tried to remember the last time I did math with actual numbers. I think it was the 5th grade. Variables, I am pretty sure, were introduced to me in Mrs. Snyder's 6th grade math class. I remember thinking it was crazy to do math with the alphabet.

My realization today is that I no longer even just use the alphabet...but I use the GREEK alphabet! (beta & psi are my favorites, while by finance buddy likes gamma)


No wonder BYU counts math for the foreign language credit.

Last year, I lived my life on the Greek alphabet in my quantum mechanics class...you learn to love Schrodinger there! But I am pleased that I have not completely crossed over to the dark side like this guy. Yikes!
