3 Ways Studying Math Made Me a Better Data Scientist

My journey into data science

1. I learned how to reason through a problem

… But I didn’t apply that skill to real-life problems very often

2. I became an expert at numbers

… But I lacked the programming skills to apply those numbers to diverse situations

3. I learned to be precise in my analysis

… But analyses in business require a different mindset than math

You, too, can build a great career as a data scientist with a math degree
