I think you're right, because if you don't know the theory you won't be able to apply it to the real life. You may use some math tools but you wonÃÂ´t know why. But I think that you need learn hwo to apply it, and if possible at the same time. I t means, learn both, math and practise, at the same time.

I'm studying engineering and I don't think that math people would have a greater perspective than the engineer. I think that engineer have a greater perspective than math because we can see the proccess from the begening to the end, it means, we see the basic math and we apply it to the real life.

I think both are necesary.
