Nathan Josephs earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Mathematics from Wesleyan University, one of the top liberal arts schools in the country. While at Wesleyan, Nathan was a fullback for the school’s rugby team. Nathan became a data scientist for GEICO after graduating, and his love for numbers and statistics led him back to school at Boston University, where he is currently a PhD candidate in the Statistics program.
‘I liked how in sports statistics we were able to use math to determine how good teams and players were compared to others. Also, I loved going to the Red Sox game and the Sports Museum at TD Garden.’
‘In our program we learned how to calculate sports stats and use them in graphs, we were also able to compare them to other. Our teacher is a big Red Sox fan and loved using statistics. I liked how we stayed together and would help each other out.‘
‘I liked how the program was fun but at the same time I learned a lot about how to calculate some basic and complicated statistics. Nancy was very helpful when I needed help, but also challenged me to do my best. Also, I really liked the field trips.’
‘I liked how the teacher was very educated about sports and math in sports. I also liked going to the Red Sox game. It was fun to make your own stat too.’
