Is it too much to combine side by side in a physics class? I'm particularly interested concidering the lack of mathematical rigor that tends to characterize physics textbooks. Some of the math descriptions in physics textbooks is incorrect from a mathematicans viewpoint, while it's precise in the

See here with discussion by mathematicans for reference:

**mathematical physics**textbooks. So why then take pure math classes for undergraduates if they ultimately only use it as a tool, and abandon several principles taught in pure math?See here with discussion by mathematicans for reference:
