I’m a student in Chicago studying economics and math.  I love math and its applications but I hate that in most academic settings “math” is little more than the memorization of abstract formulas with limited scope and applicability.  As a result, it is too often viewed as an obstacle to understanding rather than a tool that deepens understanding.  This website is my attempt to apply what I’ve learned in my undergraduate math and stats classes to business ideas and concepts, specifically finance.  I try to demonstrate that understanding the mathematical foundation of widely used (but often poorly understood) concepts/formulas is possible.  Content ranges from musings on the current state of the economy to spreadsheets and VBA programs.  You’ll also find a page (coming soon) of archived notes that I took while studying for actuary exam FM/2, which may be helpful to future actuaries and other business professionals.
