"It doesn't matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn't matter how smart you are.

If it doesn't agree with experiment, it's wrong."

The Educational Mavens (2012)

..

If it doesn't agree with experiment, it's wrong."

**Richard P. Feynman**(1918-1988), scientist, teacher, raconteur, and musician and__Nobel Prize__recipient. He assisted in the development of the atomic bomb, expanded the understanding of quantum electrodynamics, translated Mayan hieroglyphics, and cut to the heart of the Challenger disaster. But beyond all of that, Richard Feynman was a unique and multi-faceted individual.**A corollary to Feyman's observations:**

"It doesn't matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn't matter how much fidelity you use in your teaching. If the program doesn't work, the student will fail."The Educational Mavens (2012)
