Quantitative Reasoning

Math 135- Mathematical Modeling of Finance

To satisfy the Quantitative Reasoning pillar I took Mathematical Modeling of Finance with Professor Stanton. The second half of this class was very useful in that it prepared me to make budgets and I learned how to break down loan agreements. This class helped me gain many useful skills that I will be able to implement when I begin to pay my own bills and take out loans. I found the topic of this class interesting and I enjoyed being able to break down numbers and apply formulas to figure out things such as interest rates and monthly payments. I think this is a very useful course that everyone should take because it helps prepare for the financial realties of adult life.

In this class we were assigned three written paper projects where we paired with partners and created a financial plan. Below I have attached my final project. The assignment was to work with a partner and make an Amortization table/schedule for an item that we desired. I worked with my partner and we each chose an object we wanted and then created separate tables. In this project the object I desired was a new car (object A).
