How important is for a physics undergraduate to know the mathematical proofs for every theorem learnd on the math courses? Is it better to trust the math, learn the intuitive notions, and then learn the methods and operations in a more mechanical way, memorizing formulas and steps through repetition, using math more as a tool? Or go through detailed mathematical proofs consequently spending less time grasping the physics concepts?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
