“I think we need more math majors who don't become mathematicians. More math major doctors, more math major high school teachers, more math major CEOs, more math major senators. But we won't get there unless we dump the stereotype that math is only worthwhile for kid geniuses.”
Jordan Ellenberg, How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking

“A basic rule of mathematical life: if the universe hands you a hard problem, try to solve an easier one instead, and hope the simple version is close enough to the original problem that the universe doesn’t object.”
Jordan Ellenberg, How Not To Be Wrong: The Hidden Maths of Everyday

“Knowing mathematics is like wearing a pair of X-ray specs that reveal hidden structures underneath the messy and chaotic surface of the world.”
Jordan Ellenberg, How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking
