I’m afraid my off the cuff response the other day wasn’t too well thought out; when you talked about taking calc III and linear algebra, and getting resistance from one of your friends because “wolfram alpha can do all of that now,” my first reaction was horror— which is why I replied that while I’ve often regretted not taking a class seriously because I’ve later found myself in a situation where I could have put the skills to good use, I’ve never said to myself “what a waste of time it was to learn that fundamental mathematical concept and use it enough to that I truly understand it.”
