## How to Practice Mathematics as an Art

*Kutay discusses two starting points on how students can practice mathematics as an art.*

A couple years ago, I was truly fascinated by 3Blue1Brown's videos. It was actually his video on an unexpected result that came from colliding blocks that really captured me in the art of mathematics. I couldn't believe that two simple blocks would produce $\pi = 3.1415926535897...$

## Why Do People Just Hate Mathematics

*Kutay talks about why he thinks people just hate mathematics, finding teaching of mathematics the main culprit.*

In my latest post on why mathematics, as a research area, is lonely, I talked about why people just hate mathematics shortly but wanted to write another post, and here I am. In there, I mentioned how our society is kind of divided into two: the ones that are good at mathematics and the ones that are not good at mathematics. I also alluded to how our teaching of mathematics in schools are terrible. In this post, I'm going to expand on what I talked in the other post, giving additional insights.

*Kutay gives insights into why mathematics may be "lonely" and why that might not be the case.*

After a really long time, I am finally writing a post that is essay-esque, which will be about why I think mathematics is lonely. I watched a video about on this, and I wanted to write about it too (maybe in more depth). Note that I am not a maths student (I will be majoring in computer science next year), but I think I can give some insights around the topic. I found a couple reasons to why mathematics is lonely—around our culture and even between mathematicians—and why there is some hope.
