Crossing the Bridge

There’s a myth that goes around that math exists in a bubble and this is just something you have to do graduate, like some sort of perverse challenge. But math does not exist in a bubble, and math professors are not trolls under the bridge taking a toll on the way to commencement. Math is a tool to analyze and understand the real world.
