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
won´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.

engineering in my future education.

I think both are necesary.


> I would love to hear your opinions.
Here you are mine.
