//about to start a proof in discrete Rose: sometimes people complain to me about this class because it's weird how at the start we have so much rigor in all our proofs then as the months go on it gets more and more hand-wavey Rose: this is what we call mathematical maturity

//Discussing proof styles Rose: You can do whatever you want, you can use a two-column proof, affine proof, you can shear your dog's fur so the proof is written on it, whatever.

An interesting alternative proof method...

James Hill: Oh a proof? I ain't got that sort of free time. It'd be badass if Wolfram could generate proofs.
