    Thanks to our partner John Zobitz for posting this question on Twitter! It’s a debate his students are having. A student of his suggests this video:

    I love that the video highlights the point that, what today might be considered pure mathematics, in enough time might become the basis for applied mathematics. This shows the importance of funding pure research, for the sake of our future.

    So what are your thoughts? Is math discovered or invented?
