I've been mentoring a high school student in biology for the past few weeks. The other day she came to me with a math problem that she was having trouble with. Looking at this relatively simple logic problem I realized that when faced with such a thing these days that I'd rather write a program to solve it because that's way more fun. So later on I wrote a little python script to calculate all the possible values that were correct for this program up to any given value. I'm not sure if the realization that I'd rather use a computer to solve even simple problems is a good or bad thing, but I bet I would have liked math class a lot more if this is what I had to do for it.
