Do Mathematics really help us to think and open our minds?
It is not just a matter of raising a formula or follow a particular theorem. That would not be efficient. What you propose is a prelude to the ideas. The problems of calculus, and geometry agebra need ideas. think that is irrefutable. If you ever had an opportunity of solving a geometry problem you'll notice what I mean. Also you said that "left side of your brain which involves music, art, science, literature, etc.".Is important to clarify that Math is the one most important science for not say the most important. I recommend you a nice book: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematics_and_the_Imagination_(book)

What would you do when a colleague is bullied at work? What to do about workplace bullies?
I'm going to focus on the last question. "What's the best way to Deal With It?" Because there are other effective ways but obviously will affect the workplace. I think the best way to deal with it is just to make the aggressor understand that is putting a person uncomfortable or showing not interested at the time of bullying. Anyway I think the best way would be to appeal to the workers union or maybe anyone that matches of the organization.

I'm not entirely agree with what you propose. Mathematics actually uses creativity. The mathematicians´s theorems were created based on their creativity and imagination. They are fundamental. When someone tries to solve a complex Geometry problem must inevitably resort to the imagination and the ideas. Then comes the "technical "process. Thanks for your reply.
