Math Nerds...

As one who is mathematically inclined, I cannot help but notice all of the math-related handles both here and on isotropic. Who else is out there?

Depends on how you define "math nerd."  Does "chemistry/physics teacher" count?

I did a math minor during my undergrad.  But as I read more about machine learning and statistics, I am beginning to think I am really a statistician who happens to have nice employment as a software engineer.

I was big into competitive math in high school--ARML, AHSME, captained our state-winning HS math team senior year (GO MUSTANGS)--then went into engineering in college. Which I guess has math in it? but I never even took the Putnam, shame on me.

Sometimes when I'm bored I do combinatorics on dominionstrategy.com ;)

I was a Mathematical Statistics major who recently passed Actuarial Exam P.  I love solving probability problems, and often solve certain things involving Dominion, but have not posted any on this forum because I don't think they're that useful or interesting to anyone but me  :P.  I'm considering grad school.  In addition to probability theory, I'm a big fan of classical and functional analysis, though I don't use it quite as much. 

If anyone would like to collaborate on any probability articles, be sure to PM me.   ;D

I'm in college, majoring in theoretical math right now. Silly engineers and statisticians... :P

Yes I was a mathematician. I can't remember any of those theorems and proofs nowadays though. Sometimes counting to 8 can be a problem.

I used to give mathematical dance lessons. The square dance, the rhumbus, the cotango... And I know fifty digits of pi, although, not the fifty right after the three.

This is absolutely hilarious. (c:

I never really thought about it before, but I guess I also know fifty digits in pi, though they also aren't anywhere near the beginning of the sequence.

I'm just finishing my M.Sc. in Mathematics (Probability), so I guess I would qualify. I know all the digits of Pi, just not sure about the order.

Given the correlation with Math, I wonder how many of us are also music nerds.  I'm all three!

Where, oh where is the thumbs-up button?

When I'm not at my computer you'll probably find me in my music room working hard at a guitar solo or plucking away at a sonata of J.S. Bach. I posted some of my doodlings on youtube.

I hate to say that I was on track for a double major in Math and Physics before my situation changed and I dropped out.  One of my dreams is to go back to school and finish, as in a weird way, I really miss math.  Currently, I am only able to use math for fun and recently I've been teaching myself about probabilities and statistics as I attempt to get a better handle on this game.

A few weeks ago I spent my entire night trying to figure out how many combinations of 10 I could make from 25.  It took my hours to figure it out, but I had just as much fun doing that than I do playing this game.  ;)

I have a maths degree.

And as an IM with Grade 8 trumpet and Grade 7 piano, I have the holy trifecta: maths nerd, music nerd and board games nerd!

I find this to be a particularly helpful pi-memorizing mnemonic.

I teach 6th and 7th grade mathematics. I am not nearly as good at interesting mathematics as I would like, but I am working on it.

I may or may not be a math nerd. You will never know....   You will think but will not know. There is rarely a certain. There is often a probably. There is never a no but always a well if you give me this this and this... There is no begging, only asking for the rightful reward for living. There is no hating, only disliking strongly. There is truly no odd couples, only those that people percieve as odd. There is no lies, only un-told truths hidden in words. There is no stealing, only taking what you or another wants. There is no end, there is no begging, there is only what there is.

Wow.  I'm like the Canadian version of you.... eh?  It would be extremely freaky if you were working in a certain semi-conductor company...
