I’m wrapping up a master’s in 3-4 weeks. Gonna kick back for a few weeks, then I’ve got to do something to fill my time. Please comment on my options, knowing that as always, I’ll likely not listen to your sage advice.
finish my asa credentials. Something left undone for too many years. Downside, math is hard.
volunteer tutor for local high school students, specifically set up a free course for upper year hs students targeting the Euclid. The Euclid exam is out out by uwaterloo and is a factor in getting accepted into the very competitive stem programs. This is likely a ton of work for me, and be about a 3 month zoom thing. Downside, a lot of work upfront, and decent commitment ongoing.
ramp up my fishing with nerds, go ice fishing more often. Downside, it wipes out all day Saturday, and the costs can add up.
I think about three plus some modules? The core life contingencies. I’ve got srm and all the vees and the first prelims, and I’ve seen the unpassed material before in my undergrad. Prolly about 2 years? Give or take?
Master’s in math teaching. It was course based and part time, so it suited me well.
I’ve recently completed an undergrad math degree, and in a few weeks will be completing a masters degree, none of which matters to my career. I’m too far along in my career for educational credentials to matter.
I mean, maybe after retirement if I do consulting or pivot somehow, having an asa would be beneficial. But that depends on what I do in retirement.
