I want to discuss the correct study approach for performing well in proof based math classes as they differ significantly from application based math courses. The American primary school system focuses almost exclusively on applied math concepts. This leaves most college students unprepared for the absolute onslaught of proofs involved in an undergraduate math degree.

The interview process for a quantitative developer focuses heavily on algorithms and data structures with bits of math brain teasers dropped in. A quantitative trader interview is the complement of a quant-dev interview; math brain teaser heavy with bits of algorithm and data structures dropped in.

Around a year ago, I was in a zoom interview for a large tech company. I was given two reasonably challenging coding problems and aced them with ease. Then came the number theory. The interviewer asked the question "How many trailing zeros are there in 100 factorial?"

Today we will discuss a famous problem known as the St. Petersburg Paradox. The problem was originally presented by Daniel Bernoulli in 1738 in the Commentaries of the Imperial Academy of Science of Saint Petersburg (hence the name). The problem demonstrates that certain games may have extremely high payoff/utility yet the variance of outcomes can be such that no sensible person would participate (despite extremely high expectation).
