When math is not a tidy 1, 2, 3, but looks closer to π, i, e—only textbook authors and teachers conspire to make a chaotic school subject like math look pretty orderly.
Most students never see their math teachers struggle with a nonroutine math question: the false starts and failures, before an insight is in view—they only see a decent-looking solution minus the messy math, oblivious of all the shit and sweat that goes on behind the scenes.
