I teach a class called Theology and Popular Culture in which I encourage students to think theologically about the media in which they are immersed. Many students are not prepared to think so seriously about their entertainment. Others express their conclusions cautiously, expecting to be judged for their entertainment choices.
To a mathematician, mathematics is about solving problems. Mathematics is not just a collection of “facts” about the numerical and spatial aspects of the world, it is a process by which we use and develop them. The interesting part is in the reasoning, the justification, and the way different concepts are brought together to answer a question.
