Math

From Noah Smith

“Eventually I discovered the abstract “beauty” that mathematicians talk about, especially when it came to proofs.”

You know, I have worked out a lot in my life, and never experienced that “runner’s high.”  But this concept of beautiful math, yes.

When I taught that one semester of stats without calculus (!), I apologized to the class when I wrote out the proof of the central limit theorem.  Not one of them understood it, or wanted to.  But I just loved it, and had to share it with them.  Oh well.
