Math is like Music

Prof Alice Chang Sun-Yung (University of Princeton, Geometric Analysis)

“Math is a language like music. To learn it systematically, it is necessary to master small pieces & gradually add another piece & then another… In a sense, Math is like the classical Chinese language – very polished, very elegant. Sitting in a good math lecture is like sitting in a good opera. Everything comes together.”
