🔢 Math MOC
Mathematics is a language to express yourself. Master mathematics and you will be a step closer to unlocking your thinking. I really like the Rigor that math provides, which is so useful in applications such as ML.
Mathematics is useful in so many areas because it is abstract: the same good idea can unlock the problems of control engineers, civil engineers, physicists, social scientists, and mathematicians because the idea has been abstracted from a particular setting. One technique solves many problems because someone has established a theory of how to deal with these kinds of problems.
- Definitions are the way we try to capture important ideas, and
- theorems are how we summarize useful general facts about the kind of problems we are studying.
- Proofs not only show us that a statement is true; they can help us understand the statement, give us practice using important ideas, and make it easier to learn a given subject. In particular, proofs show us how ideas are tied together, so we do not have to memorize too many disconnected facts
