on Math Appeal
We short change our students by not requiring math classes. Yes it is drill drill drill but so is learning to read and write. As an engineer I have been subject to many poor teachers; people who did not understand math nor did they like it. Most importantly many instructors did not know how to find WHY students were not understanding the math problem or subject.
We also need to change society views that to show that math and logical thinking is valuable. Look how we as a society progressed in during the 60's when we focused on math and science as part of the space program.
