OUR MISSION:

The volume of work often necessitates computers who can perform the routine machine operations with great speed, but who need not have much logical insight into what the results should be...

Memo: "Computing Group Organizations and Practices at NACA" April 24th 1942

The old way of teaching math was to make you do it like a machine...

The new way is to understand it so you can build the machines!
