Whilst I'm solving a maths problem I normally try and understand the problem visually. For example, in calculus I try to justify what I'm doing by seeing how certain expressions relate with the geometry of the problem. However, sometimes when the step are quite lengthy, it feels like I'm just rearranging symbols without a real intuition as what I am doing. Will the lack of computational intuition damage my understanding of mathematical concepts, and if so what can I do to fix it?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
