Dear Math, I'm Not Your Therapist Tall Coffee or Tea Mug. Is it just us, or does Math seem to have a co-dependency issue? Are we in fact enabling Math by always running to the rescue whenever it can't find X, or it can't figure out if everything is equal, or (God forbid) it needs to do long division? Perhaps, if we let Math work through its issues, Math could become a contributing member of society. So for Math's sake, let it solve its own problems! .
