Jasper the Mathlete
Or, Mathsper, as my friend mozzer0906 has affectionately dubbed him. :) Mozzer, herself a former Mathlete, pointed out to me that, in her experience, Mathleticism (my word – I’m a little proud of it) tended to focus on the technical aspects of math, rather than business-related math; and so Jasper’s Mathlete background might not have figured largely in his decision to be an accounting major. I have to plead ignorance on this one; my school district didn’t have Mathletes, so all I know of them, I learned from high school movies, vis a vis “Never Been Kissed” (remember The Denominators?). LOL So, please suspend your disbelief on my behalf.
