Of Course It’s Dull You Idiot, It’ll Hurt More*

…a simple fact about science. It is hard. It’s really, really hard. That is not something we should attempt to paper over. It’s something we should celebrate.

I had the same experience as the writer did with regards to discovering how math solves itself. Of course, I had it at age 23 and he had it at age 17. Both of us lost our virginity – humor me – to the lovely Mademoiselle Trigonometry.

Give it a read whether you love or hate science. Go straight on til the end. He has smart things to say about science education and what we expect from students. As well as a very poignant contention about science in general, something even those allergic to math, but who still love the promise of science, can appreciate.
