# [plt-scheme] Project Euler

I like the problems -- from a math perspective. But as we have slowly
figured out over 10 years, we have to be extremely careful making CS
look like math. Everyone (ought to) knows that programming is a form
of mathematics and good programming requires skills like those
required for solving math problems. But somehow we need to hide this
fact just long enough until the kids are sufficiently committed and
will become industrial programmers :-).
Of course some of us are there because we see the beauty in math and
see how the math in programs executes. Apparently the majority of
people is mathematically blind.
