• why is creativity important??
• Creativity will let us approach problems in different ways rather than a text book answer. Creativity is one of the defining features of a human being.
• exactly what views are they talking about? I understand that this question's answer depends by different people, but I still want to know what they mean by seeing it from different perspectives.
• I think what they mean is coming up with different ways to solve a problem.
or just visualize the problem in a real life way to see how they can use it in real life.
hope this make sense.

• What does it mean if one is in advanced math grade 12 BUT, gets stuck with the last three proofs in the last chapter? But when Sal solves them, one totally gets the reasoning and can do them? Is this person creative enough to dare to go to engineering? I seriously am asking this question.My dream is to become one but what if I am not good enough? Hope one of you in the video has an answer or a solution for me!

• Thank you Jakuiz for the time you took to reply. However this sounded to me like the way a politician might have answered. I still do not have one!lol
I know that they say you must try or else you wouldn't know, however my question again will be: This isn't something I can try for free, so is there a way before entering my dream discipline (EE)to assess myself?
