Interesting Essay on Mathematics and Education

Many thanks to Larry at IEORTools for pointing out an essay by Dr. Robert H. Lewis of Fordham University entitled "Mathematics: The Most Misunderstood Subject".  It's a worthwhile read for any math geek (and, face it, if you're reading OR blogs you're probably a math geek). Besides some insightful comments about the state of mathematical education, it's a nice reminder that math is not just about answers.
